Parts 1 and 2
Masterpieces of Leonid Yacobson

During the first two parts of the show, the audience will see the restored versions of Leonid Yacobson's best creations from his Choreographic Miniatures cycle, long since recognised as some of the most illustrious creations in the history of Russian choreography. These will include: Pas de Quatre (Music by V. Bellini), The Lovers (Music by S. Kagan), Sextet (Music by W. Mozart), Viennese Waltz (Music by J. Strauss), The Gossips (Music by Ș. Aranov), Pas de Deux (Music by G. Rossini); as well as The Wedding Cortège one-act ballet (music by D. Shostakovich). The restoration efforts are seeing invaluable contributions from our tutors, many of whom once personally collaborated with Yacobson, as well as from the renowned set designers Tatiana Noginova, Alyona Pikalova, and Tatiana Vyushinskaya, and the lighting designer Kamil Kutyev.

Part 3
The Firebird
A ballet in one act

Music by Igor Stravinsky
Production and libretto by Douglas Lee (Great Britain/Germany)
Set and costume design by Eva Adler (Germany)

The third part of the show will be dedicated to The Firebird one-act ballet. Our illustrious team offers a fresh new approach to the legendary story. The production is overseen by Douglas Lee, formerly a world-renowned danseur and now a guest choreographer at Stuttgarter Ballett, collaborating with the German theatre on a permanent basis and promoting the values of neoclassical ballet through his art. The scenery and costumes are the creations of Eva Adler, a prominent set designer, while Sakis Birbilis, who has more than 300 theatrical productions in his portfolio, is working on the lighting.
