[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text text_lead=”yes”]

Maestro Andris Liepa celebrated his 55th anniversary making a precious gift to his grateful Moscow audience. “FIFTY FIVE“, a festive ballet gala concert was held in Kremlin February 18th.

Several of our friends and collaborators who are among the best ballet and stage photographers of the capital were present at this  event and made  stunning and very diverse photos. We will publish several reportages dedicated to Maestro Liepa’s Jubilee as one of the most important days in the calendar of every passionate ballet lover.

This time the performance consisted of two parts and one of them traditionally was devoted to “The Russian Seasons”  of Sergey Diaghilev. The Ballet russe was a ballet company based in Paris and performed throughout Europe and on tours to North and South America. The company, being a real jewel of Russian classical culture, never performed in Russia.

Andris Liepa is now doing a very  culturally and socially important work of bringing the phenomenon of the Russian Season back to its Motherland.  This project is developed in collaboration with Georgi Isaakian of the Natalia Sats Moscow State Musical Academic Children’s Theatre.

The guests of the FIFTY FIVE evening in Kremlin could enjoy the third “picture” of “Le Coq D’Or“, ballet and opera inspired by a Pushkin’s fairy tale, and “Le Spectre de la Rose”, a famous one act ballet by Mikhail Fokin and “Polovetskie Pliaski“, a ballet piece of  a great Borodin’s opera “The Prince Igor”.
