Event details

The Moscow City Ballet
3 July  -5 August  

The prestigious Moscow City Ballet will be in town for the whole of July, performing three much-loved classical ballets. Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet—Shakespeare’s story of the star-crossed Montague and Capulet lovers—will run for six nights from 3 July. Swan Lake (El lago de los cisnes) and Sleeping Beauty (La bella durmiente), two of Tchaikovsky’s classic 19th century ballets, follow. Victor Smirnov-Golovanov, former soloist at the Bolshoi Ballet, founded the Moscow City Ballet in 1988, one of his objectives being the preservation of the artistic disciplines of classical Russian ballet. Having enjoyed worldwide success, this is the company’s first time in Spain.
