Homage to Fokine

Chopiniana    Scheherazade   The Firebird 


Homage to Fokine opens with Chopiniana, a ballet of ethereal beauty displaying the Company's corps de ballet to stunning effect.

In complete contrast, mediaeval Russia is evoked in the powerful splendour of Mikhael Fokine's The Firebird, created for Diaghilev's Ballet Russes to Stravinsky's brilliant score.

The final work in the programme Scheherazade is another extraordinary work created for the Ballet Russes.

Fokine's sensual choreography and Rimsky- Korsakov's glittering music create a fantasy of visual extravagance enhanced by the Mariinsky's great stars, Diana Vishneva, Uliana Lopatkina, Igor Kolb and Igor Zelensky.
