Stars of Bolshoi Theatre – Moscow in Bahrain National Theatre
The world famous Bolshoi Ballet’s very first guest tour to the Kingdom of Bahrain on 12 and 13 November proved a great success. A line-up of 11 top ballet dancers showcased excerpts from well-loved choreographies at the Bahrain National Theatre. “Diamonds“ by Georges Balanchine, Marius Petipa’s pas de deux from his ballets „Don Qixote“ and „Talisman“ or Mikhail Fokin’s “Dying Swan“ set to music by Camille Saint-Saëns were among the evening gala’s highlights.
Rieder Art Consulting would like to warmly thank the Minister of Culture, H. E. Sheikha Mai Bint Mohammed Al-Khalifa, H. E. Hala Bint Mohammed Al Khalifa, Director of Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities, and Mrs. Samah Abdul Wahab Mattar for the gracious invitation and the hospitality.
The honorable presence of HRH Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and her personal meeting with two Bolhsoi Ballet principals on stage lent importance to this very special guest tour.
The dancers Ekaterina Krysanova, Anna Nikulina, Olga Smirnova, Kristina Kretova, Anna Tikhomirova, Ivan Vasiliev, Artem Ovcharenko, Denis Rodkin, Semyon Chudin and Igor Tsvirko highly enjoyed the event and great public appeal at the sold out auditorium.
All company members felt very comfortable and would be happy to return to Bahrain with the Bolshoi Ballet again in the future.
