Recreated by Alexander Gorsky, this remains one of the oldest ballets still regularly performed and tells the tale of the love between Lise and Colas, and Lise’s efforts to thwart her overly-possessive mother’s plan to marry her off to a rich, unattractive vineyard owner. Featuring comedy, drama and beautiful virtuoso dancing, these excerpts will give you a taste of the whole ballet, including the flute dance, Fanny Elsler pas de deux and the famous clog dance. Formed in 1981, the Russian State Ballet of Siberia has quickly established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are superb, and never fail to delight audiences with their breathtaking physical ability and dazzling costumes.
