One of the most prestigious ballet shows in the world takes place during the year of the90th anniversary of an outstanding choreographer and an artistic director of the competition Yuri Grigorovich. The International Ballet Competition and Contest of Choreographers 2017 precedes the "Year of the Russian ballet and the 200th anniversary of Marius Petipa".

"Ballet of the Bolshoi differs. It differs very much. And it differs in three specific causes related to each other. It's Russian. Its Soviet. And its artistic director is Yuri Grigorovich. But there are other aspects that are visible in the ballet of the Bolshoi Theater of the new style. They are caused by his own genius (because he is, I think, a great choreographer), and his special historical mission of convergence of the Leningrad and the Moscow Ballet Schools.
