Ballet Show "Summer Seasons" by Russian National Ballet Theatre (01 July 2012 - 28 August 2012)
Summer Ballet Seasons in Moscow are an integral part of the summertime
cultural life that already became a tradition: the Seasons have been an annual
fixture of the cultural calendar since 2001. This year, from July 5 to
August 27 the best classical ballets will be performed on stage of the Russian
Academic Youth Theatre (RAMT) for 11th time.
The SUMMER BALLET SEASONS were founded in 2001 and immediately attracted the
attention of audiences. The repertoire of the Seasons consists of classics
performed by promising and prominent Russian ballet companies.
More than 300,000 people have visited performances of the Seasons during
In 2001, the project was planned as the means to settle tourist
problems - in the period of summer vacations, closed theatres and concert halls,
it was impossible to form a worthy cultural program for foreign tourists. Time
passed, and today the Seasons have turned into a prominent cultural event in
Moscow. The performances of both the ballet companies, participating in Summer
Ballet Seasons, are a great rarity in their own country, as they tour abroad
most of the year. For example Moscow City Ballet had 15 annual tours and more
than 1500 performances just in UK !
The conception of the Summer Ballet Seasons is to cherish the inherited
treasures of the Russian national culture.
The performances traditionally take place in the very heart of Moscow in the
old Russian National Theatre next to the World Known Bolshoi and opposite the
Kremlin and Red Square.
