21st Rudolf Nureyev International Ballet Festival
April 24, 2014 11:41


21st Rudolf Nureyev International Ballet Festival will be held in M. Jalil Opera and Ballet Tatar State Academic Theatre from 14 to 28 May 2014.

This year, viewers will watch the premiere of "Carmina Burana or Wheel of Fortune" mystery play to Carl Orff’s music. The modern plastic of the performance, which is loved all over the world, will reflect frivolous and philosophical texts of medieval vagrants. Ballet director is Alexander Polubentsev (St. Petersburg) and choirmaster is Lyubov Draznina.

Also, the performance of contemporary ballet troupe from Dortmund, Germany will be a big surprise for Kazan audience. They will present two performances: "Tales from the Vienna Woods" to the music of I. Strauss and A.Berg (choreography by Xing Peng Wang) and "Triptych" (one-act ballets "The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude" choreographed by W.Forsyth, "Cacti" choreographed by A.Ekman and "PianoPieces" choreographed by D.Li).  In remaining days of the festival, the theater will host classical pieces from its repertoire: the ballet "Giselle", featuring eminent ballerina Svetlana Zakharova (Bolshoi Theatre), who performed the leading role and Sergei Polunin (Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Music Theatre) starring as Albert.

"La Bayadere" features the soloists of the Mariinsky Theatre, Oksana Skoryk and Kim Kimin and also soloist of The Kremlin Ballet Theatre, Joy Womack. Leading roles in Don Quixote are performed by Adiaris Almeyda (National Ballet of Cuba) and Joseph Gatti (Boston Ballet). It is expected that Swan Lake will feature the soloists of Covent Garden (London) and the Royal Danish Ballet. A brilliant part of the festival poster will be author productions: grand ballets The Golden Horde and Spartacus directed by Georgy Kovtun.

The festival traditionally ends with two gala concerts featuring dancers from France, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Cuba, etc. Tickets for regular performances will cost from 300 to 1,500 rubles.
