MOSCOW, November 5 (Itar-Tass) - Festival of world ballet schools that is due to be held in Moscow’s State Kremlin Palace has triggered an excited interest and all the tickets for performances have been sold out, Marina Leonova, the director of Moscow State Academy of Choreography and the main organizer of the festival, said Tuesday.
She admitted that the organizers had had apprehensions they would not be able to fill the hall having 6,000 seats.
“Yet the tickets have been sold out and this means the project has aroused a huge interest and we hope to live up to the audiences’ expectations,” Leonova said.
She said a dress rehearsal was held Monday. “Very good students representing diverse schools of choreography have come here,” Leonova said.
“The program includes presentations of the world’s most prominent choreographers, as well as the works by Russian ballet classics like Marius Petipa, Alexander Gorsky, Lev Ivanov, and Yuri Grigorovich,” Leonova said.
The festival, which is due to be held November 6 and November 7, is devoted to the 240th anniversary since the foundation of the Moscow Academy of Choreography set up in 1773 at an order of the Russian Empress Catherine II.
