Following their sell-out performances of A Festival of Russian Ballet, the Imperial Russian Ballet Company return to New Zealand with A Russian Triple Bill. This is the first time that the company has brought this stunning programme to New Zealand.
Act 1 — Sleeping Beauty (Act III) (pictured): A holiday is declared for the wedding of Princess Aurora and Prince Desire. This is a joyous and happy ballet loved by all.
Act 2 — Les Sylphides: A short ballet in one act about a young man who while walking at night encounters a group of sylphs or magical women.
Act 3 — Carmen: Carmen is a flirtatious and seductive gypsy woman whose love affair with two men ends in tragedy.
“In a night that overflows with all things ballet, you can’t help be swept up by the sheer panache of the Imperial Russian Ballet Company dancers.” — The West Australian.
Nobody does ballet like the Russians and the Imperial Russian ballet company does it best of all.
