The history of Russian choreographic art began more than three centuries ago and evolved through the pioneering genius of Tchaikovsky, Petipa and Ivanov. It’s these people who brought you masterpieces like Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and the Nutcracker. Since then, Russian classical ballet has become a cultural brand of the country. As you arrive at the theatre, the curtain will go up and you will to enjoy one of the most romantic ballets of all time. You will be deeply moved by a timeless love story told in the mysterious language of classical dance. Champagne and mineral water will be served in the intermission as you experience an art form that has been shaped by Russian culture. It’s a night you’ll never forget.
