The sixth edition of the Russian Gala in Monaco capitalizes upon the opening of artistic borders with the brilliant soloists of the Bolshoi and Mikhailovsky theaters, the stars of the English National Ballet, of the Staatsballet Berlin and of other major, world-renowned troupes performing together on stage on the 16th of september.
The Gala Russe project takes its turn following Dyaguilev’s heritage to present Russian culture in the Côte d’Azur.
The opening of Gala Russe project in September 2012 with a Gala of Russian ballet stars turned out to be a magnificent social event. The excitement raised by the appearance of famous Russian dancers on stage in the Grimaldi Forum has shown yet another time the interest towards Russian culture and the relevance of such event in contemporary Europe.
All of the artists who participate in this Gala are united by a positive and respectful attitude towards the traditions of the great Russian choreographic school. This geographic diversity among the participants demonstrates that, today, art knows no borders.
The program will focus on the mix between avant-garde ballets and masterpieces of the classical repertoire. The result will not only be brilliant, but also unexpected: each artists will perform both an excerpt of classical ballet and of a modern choreography, showcasing a full range of expressions and secrets.
Performance at 8:00 pm – Salle des Princes, Monte-Carlo, Monaco
