Victor Smirnov-Golovanov (Libretto)

Victor Smirnov-Golovanov, Deserved Figure of Arts in Ukraine was born in 1934 in Moscow. He is a graduate of the famous Moscow School of Choreography, and he counts among his teachers such great names as Lavrovsky and Goleizovsky, as well as Balanchine and Jerome Robbins. He later became a soloist with the Bolshoi Ballet, where he appeared for more than 20 years. Between 1970 and 1989 he was Chief Ballet-Master with the Odessa State Opera and Ballet Theatre.

Victor Smirnov-Golovanov In 1988 Victor formed Moscow City Ballet with the aim to promote the original ideas of the great 19th century choreographers. He encourages his dancers to use their own character delineation, while adhering faithfully to the original choreography.

Victor Smirnov-Golovanov is passionate in his belief that classical ballet is an essential part of the national heritage of Russia, and declares that his aim is to bring it to as wide a public as possible, especially the new generation of young converts to dance. His stated intention was to promote the original ideas of the great 19th century choreographers. He has tried to maintain a clearly-defined style and choreographic integrity in both his own productions and in older versions of the classical ballets. The company of around 70 dancers (they also maintain their own orchestra) aspires to maintain high performance standards in the traditional manner of the classic Russian corps de ballet. They draw on graduates from leading choreographic academies and schools in Russia and the Ukraine, as well as inviting soloists from abroad as guest artists.
