The Moscow Festival Ballet will perform Cinderella on Tuesday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m. as a part of the 22nd annual Delta International Series at the Fox Theatre. Individual ticket prices are $45 and $55.
For the pre-show cross-culture experience that is a part of the International Series, instructors and dancers from Good Moves will demonstrate the difference between the classical ballet styles of Petipa and the newer methods generated by the modern composers of the twentieth century. Patrons will also be invited to participate in a short dance class during the pre-show experience.
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 which 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. Leading dancers from across the Russias have forged under Radchenko’s direction an exciting new company staging new productions of timeless classics such as Giselle, Don Quixote, Paquita, and Carmen.
Since its inception . . ., the Moscow Festival Ballet has completed two tours of Europe with extraordinary receptions in Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and the Netherlands. The company has also performed with great success in Turkey at the Istanbul Festival, in Greece at the Athens Festival, and recently completed a two-month tour of Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong. Under the direction of Sergei Radchenko, the Moscow Festival Ballet continues to expand its repertoire. In addition to commissioning new works from within Russia and abroad, the company specializes in Twentieth Century full-length ballets such as Cinderella, Romeo and Juliet, Legend of Love, Stone Flower and The Golden Age.
