Record Breaking Tour
Moscow Ballet announces a record-breaking season in 2013 and is honored with a second visit by the First Family in Washington D.C. Audiences from NYC to LA and from Puerto Rico to Calgary came out to see 4 classic ballets: “Great Russian Nutcracker,” “Cinderella”, “Sleeping Beauty” or “Swan Lake.” Big cities including LA, NYC and Chicago sold-out as well as heartland towns Kearny, Shreveport and Cedar City, to name a few. Press reviews confirm artistic excellence: LA Times, “Disarmingly poetic…bravura expertise,” Minneapolis Pioneer Press, “Sweeps you up in the bliss of beauty” and Arkansas’ Democrat-Gazette, “Stunning visuals, effortlessness dancing…full of joyful energy.”
Community Engagement is half the fun!
Moscow Ballet is all about community engagement outreach which, this year, included a Creative Development Residency with local student dancers, the full company and Broadway director James Warwick and a 2-day New Horizons-A Children’s Program for Life in Latta S.C. for 500 school children, and Moscow Ballet dancers visited 4 children’s hospitals. In 2013 Moscow Ballet was honored to become an Advocate for the President’s Challenge program; Musical Wunderkind – Cellists accompanied Moscow Ballet ballerina in Saint Saen’s “Dying Swan” in 8 tour cities and live youth choirs sang in 7 more cities.
