Sergei Radchenko, Artistic Director
Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake
One of the world's most beloved stories portrayed in an unforgettable evening of ballet performed by leading dancers from across Russia along with stars of the Bolshoi and Kirov Ballets.
The Moscow Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 when legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, Sergei Radchenko, sought to realize his vision of a company which would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies in an independent new company, continuing the grand traditions which define the best in Russian ballet.
Since its inception, the Moscow Festival Ballet Theatre has completed multiple tours of Europe with extraordinary receptions in Italy, France, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands, two tours of the UK including capacity audiences at London's famed coliseum, and enjoyed tremendous success in Turkey, Greece, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong.
