Ballets Russes Gala Set for Monaco's Grimaldi Forum Tonight, Sept 7
This "Russian Gala" will bring the glorious tradition of Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes alive again. At this special evening, the audience is invited to discover (or rediscover) the Russian passion for the art of dance through a wide variety of classical and contemporary performances. The aim of this event is also to strengthen cultural links between the Principality of Monaco and Russia.
At this performance, which will take place tonight, Friday 7 September at 8 pm, at Salle des Princes, Grimaldi Forum, stars from some of the great Russian theaters will appear together on stage-the Bolshoi (from Moscow), the Mariinsky (from St. Petersburg) and the Mikhailovsky (also from St. Petersburg).
The program for this gala is a real "best of" pas de deux from the great classics, including Bizet's "Carmen," Drigo's "The Talisman," Strauss' "Vienna Waltz," Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" and Mussorgsky's "The Waltz."
