From the cradle of classical ballet, Moscow City Ballet are celebrating the Russian tradition in spectacular style with its Tchaikovsky Trilogy, which runs at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre from February 10th - 15th forthcoming.
Tchaikovsky is the undisputed Tsar of ballet; his sweeping scores have the power to transport audiences from delight to despair, each composition a masterpiece perfectly complementing the dancers and narrative, especially when performed by a full orchestra.
The original Petipa - Ivanov choreography incorporates the distinctive composition of the late Victor Smirnov-Golovanov, a precious legacy upheld by the new generation of principal dancers, adding a youthful exuberance to these renowned ballets.
The tragedy of Swan Lake, The Nutcracker's festive adventure and the 100-year curse of The Sleeping Beauty are brought to life in exquisite performances by Moscow City Ballet this February at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre...
