“CONTEXT. DIANA VISHNEVA” 8th International Festival of Contemporary Choreography

The festival introduces Russian audiences to the best achievements of modern dance art.

Within the framework of the festival in St. Petersburg, for the first time, two one-act ballets by the choreographer, winner of the Golden Mask award, Alexei Miroshnichenko, staged at the Perm Opera and Ballet Theater will be shown: "The Jester" based on the fairy tales of the Perm province in recreated scenery and costumes based on sketches by the artist Mikhail Larionov and "Scheherazade" - a ballet to the music of N. Rimsky-Korsakov's symphonic suite. Diana Vishneva will perform the main part in the ballet Scheherazade. The festival will open with an Evening of Young Russian Choreographers, which will feature the works of the five finalists of the competition and the work of the 2019 winner.
