The Russian State Ballet of Siberia returns in 2020 for a 22-venue schedule (2 January – 15 March) including dates in Manchester. It will be the Company’s 18th UK tour and will feature exquisite performances of four of the world’s most popular ballets.
The Russian State Ballet of Siberia is one of Russia’s leading ballet companies having built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are exceptional, delighting audiences with their breath-taking physical ability and beautiful costumes as each storyline unfolds to the live accompaniment of the orchestra.
The company comprises over 40 dancers and 30 musicians. The productions merge traditional and digital worlds with an imaginative staging set against an ever-changing colourful backdrop with magical special effects.
Commenting on the dates, Artistic Director, Sergei Bobrov said, “It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian Ballet to British audiences. Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly skilled musicians is always exciting. For me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage.”
