London – The Mariinsky Ballet returns with another exciting three-week season, opening with
one of the most cherished and admired of 20th–century Russian ballets, Leonid Lavrovsky’s Romeo and Juliet. The repertoire continues with an entrancing production
of Konstantin Sergeyev’s Swan Lake and two spellbinding ballets by George Balanchine: A Midsummer Night’s Dream – performed for the first time outside Russia – and Apollo set to Stravinsky’s radiant score. Mikhail Fokine’s powerful The Firebird, Frederick Ashton’s celebrated version of Dumas Fils’s tale of passion and loss Marguerite and Armand and Alexei Ratmansky’s acclaimed Concerto DSCH to a thrilling score by Shostakovich, complete an incomparable triple bill. The season ends with the beloved fairytale of Cinderella, with Ratmansky’s spectacular choreography perfectly capturing
the joy, lyricism and wit of Prokofiev’s unforgettable score.
