  2. Russian National Ballet Theatre »

    Monday Mar 20

    7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. @ Bondurant Auditorium, Preston Hall

    From out of the depths of the Cold War’s end, the Russian National Ballet Theatre emerged as part of a newfound creative freedom. It began as the Soviet National Ballet during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s. Graduates from the great Russian choreographic schools of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Perm came together to form a new and vibrant dance company. With principal dancers from the upper ranks of prestigious ballet companies and academies of Russia, Riga, Kiev and Warsaw, they dedicated themselves to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet. They enhanced this through the incorporation of new developments in dance from around the world. In 1994, the legendary Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko, by presidential decree, assumed the first permanent artistic directorship of the company and began the Russian National Ballet Theatre. They focus on upholding the national tradition of the major Russian ballet works and developing new talents throughout Russia, with a repertory of virtually all the full works of Petipa: “Don Quixote,” “La Bayadere,” “The Sleeping Beauty,” “Swan Lake,” “Raymonda,” “Paquita,” “Coppelia” and “La Sylphide.” Tickets: General Public: $15, Children: $7.50, RU ID: Free. Tickets are available two weeks prior to the event online at radfordactivities.universitytickets.com or at the Hurlburt Hall Information Desk (540-831-5420).
