The Russian Ballet will perform a gala concert dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the birth of the famous Russian choreographer, Marius Petipa will take place December 21st, at 20:00h, at Belgrade’s Kombank Dvorana.
Marius Petipa (1818-1910) was a prominent Russian-French choreographer, actor, ballet master and teacher. He is considered the father of a classic ballet, combining French, Italian and Russian elements.
The list of ballets he choreographed in Russia is very long, over 70. Petipa also had 46 original performances, excluding the opera and theatre ballet performances. Some of the ballets that he choreographed include “La Bayadere”, “Raymonda”, “The Sleeping Beauty”, “Nutcracker” and “Swan Lake”.
The stars of the Russian ballet – the brilliant soloists of Mariinsky and Mikhailovsky Theatre from St. Petersburg, as well as the Bolshoi Theatre – will dance Petipa’s masterpieces in Belgrade.
The programme will be split into two 50-minute-segments.
Tickets are on sale at the price of 2,000 to 3,000 dinars at the Kombank Dvorana box office and Eventim outlets.
