Following their successful South African tour in 2011, Stars of the Ballet Moscow return for a nationwide tour in June & July 2013. Yuri Vetrov, former director of the Bolshoi Ballet, has prepared a magnificent new programme which will celebrate the music of the great Russian composers Sergei Rachmaninov and Pyotr Tchaikovsky. One act ballet Paganini was staged at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1960 and performed to the choreography of Leonid Lavrovsky. Other delightful pieces will include Adagio from Symphony no.2 and All by Myself, choreographed by Yuri Vetrov. The second half of the programme will include masterpieces of the world classical ballet, such as P.I. Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet – one act ballet and extracts from ballets Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker.
