The Mikhailovsky theatre goes on tour to USA
In autumn 2014, for the first time in its history, the Mikhailovsky Theatre is going on tour in the United States. From 11–23 November, the ballet company will perform at the Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater in New York, and from 28–30 November, at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in California.
The Mikhailovsky Ballet has put together a tour programme including world classics and ballets from the Soviet period, as well as contemporary productions which demonstrate the company’s continual search for new artistic forms.
The company’s leading soloists, whose names are synonymous around the world with the highest achievements in Russian ballet today, will take part in the tour. Among these will be the phenomenal Natalia Osipova, Ivan Vasiliev, and Leonid Sarafanov — all top-ranking international stars — as well as representatives from the younger generation of dancers, whose talent has received well-deserved recognition and whose names are also well known: Angelina Vorontsova, Kristina Shapran, Oksana Bondareva, Victor Lebedev and Ivan Zaytsev.
