A unique evening with the participation of theatre and movie actress, TV presenter Ilse Liepa, as well as the leading artists of the Bolshoi and Mariinsky ballet. The Liepa dynasty is almost synonymous with the concept of «ballet». This name has been heard even by those who are not interested in ballet. Ilse is a worthy successor of the high traditions of the famous surname. The life of the ballerina herself, who grew up in a house where everything was connected with the beautiful world of dance, is intertwined with great destinies of Russian art in the «Ilse Liepa. Russian Ballet» program. The performance presents the pearls of the world ballet art — fragments from «Swan Lake», «The Nutcracker», «Don Quixote», «La Sylphide» and popular miniatures performed by the stars of the Russian ballet scene. This evening, the Mariinsky Theatre’s premier Igor Kolb, the leading soloists of the Bolshoi Ballet Kristina Kretova and Igor Tsvirko, the Honored Artist of Russia, the leading soloist of the Bolshoi Theater Anastasia Goryacheva and other outstanding dancers will perform.
