ST. PETERSBURG, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian ballet star, principle ballet dancer of Bolshoi ballet Ilze Liepa told a news conference on Wednesday that she believes that the arts festival in Koktebel will be given a new lease of life, the ballet dancer declared at Corinthia Nevsky Palace hotel where she discussed plans of her jubilee party due on April 4.
Ilze Liepa said she took part in one of the festivals in Koktebel (Crimea), organized by piano player Alla Basargina, and decided to join the organizers of the festival who faced many problems then.
The festival has good prospects of turning into a big celebration of classical art, uniting music, theater and possibly, cinematography, Ilze Liepa said. "I have experienced a keen sense of pride for Russia which in such a difficult situation has demonstrated its strong will and dignity."
"The workers of art and culture of Russia and Ukraine should uphold their traditional good cultural contacts and share their spiritual treasures,” Ilze Liepa said.
