Moscow City Ballet is heading to Manchester

RENOWNED dance company, Moscow City Ballet, returns following a triumphant season with its dramatic traditional story telling and captivating performances, appearing at the Palace Theatre Manchester, from 1 March to 3 March 2018.

Moscow City Ballet reaches the UK on the back of another jubilant world wide tour where it reaffirmed its popularity with thousands of dance fans. The company's dazzling repertoire of full scale ballet classics:- 'Swan Lake' and 'The Sleeping Beauty' which emphasise the fact that Russian 'big story' ballets combine artistry, technique, narrative and live music, thus providing a true dancing experience. Audiences can not only marvel at the perfection of its corps de ballet but witness the excellent dexterity and grace of principal ballerinas Alevtina Lapshina and Liliya Oryekhova.

Swan Lake is performed in all its original splendour by some of the world's finest dancers. The epic story of Prince Siegfried and his love for Odette who, tricked by the evil sorcerer Von Rothbart and his daughter Odile, would rather die together then live apart, the ballet is performed beautifully to the familiar score by Tchaikovsky.

The enchanting and romantic story of 'The Sleeping Beauty' inspired Tchaikovsky to write some of his most glorious music, and the ballet has captivated the imaginations of people for well over a hundred years. Featuring the delicate Princess Aurora, her gallant Prince, the beautiful Lilac Fairy and a host of fairy tale characters, this is a truly magical production.

Live music is at the heart of Moscow City Ballet's productions and Tchaikovsky's (both Prokofiev's and Tchaikovsky's) masterpiece scores are played beautifully by the Moscow City Ballet Orchestra adding an extra dimension of drama and splendour.

Founded by Victor Smirnov Golovanov in 1988, Moscow City Ballet is one of Russia's most successful and popular touring ballet companies, highly admired for its distinctive style, exciting choreography and exceptionally gifted dancers. Under the artistic direction of Ludmila Neroubashchenko the company continues to be committed to promoting ballet in the Russian classical tradition to audiences all over the world. These unique productions still continue the legacy of the distinctive choreography created by Victor Smirnov Golovanov.
