THE renowned Russian State Ballet of Siberia will perform three of the world’s most popular ballets in a 22-venue tour next year.

Accompanied by the State Orchestra, they will come to Brighton’s Theatre Royal for a three night stint from February 17 to 19.

On the first night at the Theatre Royal, they will perform Coppélia and on the second night, Sleeping Beauty.

On the third night they will perform the greatest of all romantic ballets, Swan Lake.

Backed by Tchaikovsky’s score, Swan lake features the dual role of Odette/Odile, which is known as one of ballet’s most impressive technical challenges.

Founded in 1978, the company have established themselves as one of Russia’s leading ballets and earned an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth. This will be the eighth time they have toured the UK.

The company comprises more than 40 dancers and 30 musicians. The productions merge traditional and digital worlds with an imaginative staging set against an ever-changing colourful backdrop with magical special effects.

“It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian Ballet to British audiences,” said artistic director Sergei Bobrov.

“Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly skilled musicians is always exciting. For me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage.”
