MOSCOW, July 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow's famous Bolshoi opera, orchestra and chorus will be a centerpiece of New York's 2014 Lincoln Center Festival, one of the world’s most prestigious cultural events.
The theater's eminent stage names will open the program with Rimsky-Korsakov's opera “Tsar's Bride” on July 12-13. Three ballets, “Swan Lake”, “Don Quixote” and “Spartacus”, will follow on July 15-27.
“Our company here is in full strength,” theatre general director Vladimir Urin told ITAR-TASS. "Tickets have been sold out, and I hope politics will be set aside.”
New York first staged the festival in 1996, created to open the theater world of other countries to American audiences. The represented genres range from classical music to circus, ballet to modern art, arriving also from Australia, Japan and Belgium.
Lincoln has served as host to worldwide famous theaters. Covent Garden, La Scala, Comedie Francaise and Russia's Mariinsky and Vakhtangov have all thrilled their audiences.
