Gala Svetlana Zakharova & Friends
with the étoiles of the Russian Ballet
Denis Rodkin, Mikhail Lobukhin, Anastasia Stashkevich, Anna Ol, Semyon Velichko
Prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova is back, mesmerising Ravenna with her haughty beauty and elegant stage persona in a new programme of choreographic gems. At the height of her career and maturity as a performer, the étoile of the Bolshoi and La Scala interprets the lesson of Terpsichore in all its different shades: from the Dying Swan, the hyper-classic solo choreography Fokine created for Pavlova in 1905, to Revelation, a dance “haiku” created for her by Motoko Hirayama, the first Japanese choreographer working for Bolshoi. In the limelight with her is a group of first-rate artists, including the Bolshoi principal dancers Denis Rodkin and Mikhail Lobukhin, the Mariinsky soloists, and some guest stars from other prestigious companies.
