LOS ANGELES, October 3 (Itar-Tass) — The ballet troupe of the Maryinsky Theater opens its guest tour in the United States on Wednesday with the presentation of Peter Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake ballet at the Henry Segerstrom Center for the Performing Arts at Costa Mesa, California.
Sergei Danilyan, organizer of the guest tour, has told Itar-Tass that the St Petersburg-based ballet troupe will tour in three American cities. The tour will continue until October 21. In all, thirteen performances of the Swan Lake are to be given in California -- at the Segerstrom Center in Costa Mesa and on the stage of the famous Zellerbach Hall in Berkeley.
In the Swan Lake, the audiences will see the main roles performed by leading ballet dancers who have been already highly appreciated by American ballet connoisseurs: Yekaterina Kondaurova, Yevgeny Ivanchenko, Danila Korsuntsev, and Vladimir Shklyarov.
Danilyan said the audiences would also get acquainted with talented young ballet dancers -- Oxana Skorik, Timur Askerov, Maxim Zyuzin, and Alexander Sergeyev. The Maryinsky Theater Orchestra will be conducted by Mikhail Agrest.
The troupe will present concluding perfomrances in Washington on the stage of the Kennedy Center where the ballet Cinderella by Sergei Prokofiev will be presented in an ingenious production by Alexei Ratmansky.
