The Russian Ballet Icons Gala 2015 will celebrate its 10th anniversary in a special retrospective performance dedicated to the history of Russian Ballet

Every Gala is a multimedia experience which combines performances by living masters who celebrate the life and art of the greatest performers of the Russian ballet and the importance of the Russian ballet school generally. 'Flight performed by the soul' is how Alexander Pushkin described Russian ballet, whilst speaking of contemporary ballerina Evdokia Istomina in Eugene Onegin. It was the Russian ballet that was destined to revive the art worldwide by giving the world mesmerising dancers such as Anna Pavlova, Mikhail Fokin, Leonid Myasin, Bronislawa Nijinskaya, Vazlav Nijinsky, and George Balanchine. The sensational Ballets Russes of Sergey Diaghilev remains until today one of the most significant achievements in the ballet history.

The programme will be performed by the leading star dancers of the Bolshoi, Mariinsky, Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, ballets of the Grand Opera Paris, Berlin Staatsoper, New York City Ballet and the Ballet of Monte Carlo.
