“The dancers spoke to the soul through the body, performing a magnificent Giselle.” - The Post and Courier
The Moscow Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 when legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet Sergei Radchenko sought to realize his vision of a company that would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies in an independent new company within the framework of Russian classic ballet. The company will perform the classic Giselle, ballet’s original ghost story. Giselle is the haunting drama about a poor peasant girl and the prince who deceives her. The ballet, which first premiered in 1841, features some of the best roles for dancers ever conceived and is considered one of the great classical ballets of our time.Artist Website Video Photos
