Photo Coverage: First Look at AMORE Featuring Ballerina Svetlana Zakharova

Amore is the first ever UK performances of a new triple bill by the Bolshoi superstar ballerina Svetlana Zakharova. BroadwayWorld has an exclusive first look below!

Svetlana Zakharova is joined on stage by the Bolshoi theatre dancers including stellar premieres Mikhail Lobukhin, Denis Rodkin and Denis Savin. Live music will be provided by the Orchestra of English National Opera under the direction of the Bolshoi's maestro Pavel Sorokin.

In Amore, Zakharova has collaborated with three world-renowned choreographers: Yuri Possokhov (San Francisco Ballet), Patrick de Bana (Vienna State Ballet) and Marguerite Donlon (Irish choreographer based in Berlin).

Yuri Possokhov's ballet Francesca da Rimini is set to Tchaikovsky's symphonic poem of the same name, which was in its own turn inspired by a love story from Dante's Inferno.

Abstract by design, mysterious and atmospheric, Rain Before it Falls is choreographed by Patrick de Bana, who himself dances in the piece. It is performed to classical sounds of Bach and Respighi mixed with modern electronica by Carlos Pina-Quintana.

Strokes Through the Tail choreographed by Marguerite Donlon is set to Mozart's Symphony No.40. It is a frivolous piece providing the perfect ending to the evening. The costumes for both Strokes Through the Tail and Francesca da Rimini are created by Russian fashion designer Igor Chapurin.

Amore is a MuzArts production.
The triple bill is presented in London by MuzArts in association with Classical Events Ltd. / PMB Presentations
