We are pleased to inform all fans of classical ballet about the triumphant start of the tour State Theater “Russian Ballet” conducted by Vyacheslav Gordeev. Without exaggeration, they can be called the main event of the theater season! The illustrious ballet company, performing for the first time in Israel in the first composition, showed the highest level of skill, worthy of the best world scenes. An enthusiastic ovation from the audience – a vivid confirmation of this!
The path of this tour to the Israeli audience was very difficult – due to the coronavirus epidemic, the dates of the tour were repeatedly postponed, then, due to problems with flights, the artists had to get to us through Egypt, through the Sinai desert. But the audience's 3-year wait and the road adventures of the artists were more than paid off by the amazing atmosphere of high ballet art that arose at the performances of the Russian Ballet. Sophisticated Israeli ballet lovers greeted the artists very warmly, calling for a bow 4-5 times after the performance. The artists are also satisfied, warmed by the unusually warm reception of the Israeli public and the warm Israeli sun, which contrasts so much with the cold and rainy Moscow spring.
The tour is in full swing! Don't miss the brightest event of the season! Details and ticketing – at Cashier Bravo: *3221.
Swan Lake, the world's most famous and most beloved ballet, needs no introduction. He has not left the stages of the world's leading theaters for more than a hundred years. The musical genius of Tchaikovsky, the brilliant choreography of Marius Petipa, the dramatic libretto about love and fidelity, about the struggle between good and evil, combined together, gave rise to a perfect creation that you want to enjoy again and again, even when all the plot twists and musical numbers are known.

Gordeev, the director, sensitively and carefully approaches the great classics. For example, in the traditional production of Petipa, the number of swans on the stage – 24. This is not easy to implement, especially in terms of foreign tours. “Swan Lake” in the version of the theater “Russian Ballet” – this is a large-scale production, without cuts and cuts. On tour in Israel, the project employs 100 participants. And for the first time the performances will be performed by the artists of the first staff of the theater, which in itself is already an event for ballet fans.
