Ballet Show "Summer Seasons" by leading Ballet Companies: Moscow City Ballet and Russian National Ballet Theatre (05 July 2010 - 27 August 2010)
The SUMMER BALLET SEASONS were founded in 2001 and immediately attracted the attention of audiences. The repertoire of the Seasons consists of classics performed by promising and prominent Russian ballet companies.
More than 300,000 people have visited performances of the Seasons during these years.
In 2001, the project was planned as the means to settle tourist problems - in the period of summer vacations, closed theatres and concert halls, it was impossible to form a worthy cultural program for foreign tourists. Time passed, and today the Seasons have turned into a prominent cultural event in Moscow. The performances of both the ballet companies, participating in Summer Ballet Seasons, are a great rarity in their own country, as they tour abroad most of the year. For example Moscow City Ballet had 15 annual tours and more than 1500 performances just in UK !
The conception of the Summer Ballet Seasons is to cherish the inherited treasures of the Russian national culture.
The performances traditionally take place in the very heart of Moscow in the old Russian National Theatre next to the World Known Bolshoi and opposite the Kremlin and Red Square.
