An impressive performance of a classical ballet, energized with dramatic expression and sensational steps. —The Chronicle; Durham, North Carolina.

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. Since its inception, the Moscow Festival Ballet has completed two tours of Europe, with extraordinary receptions in Italy, France, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands. Two tours of the United Kingdom, including capacity audiences at London’s famed Coliseum, have resulted in re-engagements during the 1995-96, 1996-97, 1997-98, 19998-99 and 1999-2000 seasons. 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. Mr. Radchenko has researched the original choreography and stage productions of several of Marius Petipa’s classic ballets, including new productions in the year 2000 of Don Quixote and Paquita, and a recreation of Jules Perrot’s and Jean Coralli’s Giselle.

Ticket prices range from $10-$60. For more information and to buy tickets, contact the Van Wezel Box office at (941) 953-3368 or log onto www.vanwezel.org Sponsored by Wilde Lexus of Sarasota and WSMR 89.1
