Gala Russe – The World Ballet Stars at Grimaldi Forum Monaco

Ballet goes global on Saturday 16 September 2017

The sixth Gala Russe (Russian Gala) capitalises on the opening up of artistic borders.

In collaboration with the outstanding soloists of the Bolshoi and Mikhailovsky Theatre ballet companies, the stars of the English National Ballet, Staatsballett Berlin and other major companies from around the world will perform together on stage.

All of the artists taking part in the Gala are united in their positive and respectful attitude towards the traditions of the great Russian choreography school. The diversity of their geographical backgrounds is a clear illustration of the fact that art knows no boundaries in today’s world.

The programme will feature a mix of avant-garde productions and masterpieces from the classical repertoire.

The result will be not just dazzling but also unexpected: each artist will perform both an excerpt from a classical ballet and a piece of modern choreography, showcasing a full range of expression and mystery.

8 pm, Saturday 16 September 2017, Salle des Princes, Grimaldi Forum Monaco
