The international project Summer Ballet Seasons has been on stage of the Russian Academic Youth Theatre of Moscow for 16 years and it keeps growing, developing and searching for new names in ballet.
This year the producers invited many interesting guests such as Voronezh State Opera and Ballet Theatre, Compagnia Nazionale from Italy, Classic Ballet Theatre ART-da and the soloists of Opéra national de Paris Jérémy-Loup Quer and Antoine Kirscher.
Summer Ballet Seasons contributes a lot to a very important aim of promotion and popularisation of ballet. Being present at one of the performances yesterday we noticed a lot of people who evidently didn’t belong to that experienced and a bit “snobbish” ballet audience. For some of them it was the first ballet performance in their life. It’s hard to express the pleasure to see their reaction – so emotional, inspiring and thankful.
Today we are happy to present this little reportage made by Elena Pushkina at the Swan Lake performance of Moscow Ballet “La Classique” with participation of beautiful Diana Kosyreva of the Bolshoi Theatre.
