Kirov Ballet and Orchestra to perform at New York City Center
April 1 – 20, 2008
Featuring Uliana Lopatkina, Diana Vishneva, and Leonid Sarafanov
The world renowned Kirov Ballet, also known as Ballet Company of the Mariinsky Theatre of St. Petersburg, Russia, returns to New York for a three-week engagement, April 1 – 20, performing for the first time at New York City Center. The season will be presented by Ardani Artists in association with New York City Center.

During its three-week season, the 200-year-old Russian company, under the Artistic Direction of Valery Gergiev and Director of the Ballet Makhar Vaziev, will be performing a wide range of works by the choreographers and artists who have made the Kirov one of the world's greatest ballet companies, as well as works by contemporary dance makers. The company's rich classical repertoire includes works by Marius Petipa, Michel Fokine and George Balanchine and more modern works by William Forsythe. The Kirov Ballet will bring some of its most acclaimed repertory classics: Petipa's The Kingdom of Shadows from La Bayadere; Fokine's Scheherazade and Chopiniana; Gorsky's The Grand Pas de Deux from Don Quixote; Rubies from Balanchine's Jewels, and Ballet Imperial; as well as Forsythe's Steptext.

It will be first appearance of the Kirov Ballet and Orchestra at New York City Center, home to some of the country's leading dance companies, including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre and Paul Taylor Dance Company.
