The sheer beauty of Russian ballet
May 4 th, 2015
Pretoria - Ballet lovers had the opportunity to enjoy Russian Ballet performances over three days at the South African State Theatre. The carefully selected line-up was arranged to suit all South African ballet lovers. The show opened with the world premiere of Emelianov’s Manfred, a one act ballet choreographed to one of Tchaikovsky’s masterpieces. The narrative scene showed the deep remorse and moral anguish from Lord Byron’s poem of the same name. With supernatural effects, the metaphysical torment of Manfred gave a choreographic distinction. On 6 to 9 May the classical ballet will thrill South Africans of all ages at the Baxter Theatre in Rondebosh.
