Bolshoi & St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre – Russian Ballet comes to London August 2015

After sold out seasons in Paris, Singapore, Johannesburg and Melbourne, the renowned St Petersburg Ballet Theatre continues its 2015 international tour with its London Coliseum season. Internationally acclaimed Irina Kolesnikova brings together stars of the Mariinsky Theatre and the Bolshoi Theatre in a spell-binding production of La Bayadère. La Bayadère is an exotic and mesmerising tale of love, murder and vengeful judgement by the Gods, set in the perfumed gardens and lavish palaces of India. Although the complete ballet is seldom seen in the west, there is hardly a company around that can perform to this degree the mesmerising and revered Kingdom of the Shades sequence. A powerful and dramatic ballet to the lyrical score by Ludwig Minkus, this full-length ballet is accompanied by The St Petersburg Ballet Orchestra. With lavish costumes, beautiful sets and a company of 55, this magnificent production is not to be missed. 'Irina Kolesnikova dances the tragic heroine, Nikiya, with a fluent, strong technique and depth of feeling that anchor the whole performance.' The Sunday Times 'Drilled within an inch of their lives, the Corp de Ballet had the kind of precision movement an audience can get lost in.' The Scotsman 'A world class talent, Kolesnikova improves year on year with her passion, obvious perfectionism and inimitable technique.' Sunday Express The Irina Kolesnikova London Season with*: Irina Kolesnikova - St Petersburg Ballet Theatre: 22 & 23 August Denis Rodkin - Bolshoi Ballet: 22 & 23 August        *The management reserves the right to substitute any scheduled artist for any reason whatsoever even at short notice should the need arise.
