FLORENCE – The Moscow Festival Ballet will appear at the Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center on Monday, April 9.
The Ballet was founded in 1989 when legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet Sergei Radchenko sought to realize his vision of a company which would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies in an independent new company within the framework of Russian classic ballet.
Leading dancers from across Russia have forged under Radchenko’s direction an exciting new company staging productions of timeless classics such as Giselle, Don Quixote, Paquita and Carmen. From their repertoire, the ballet will perform Chopiniana/Romeo & Juliet.
The Moscow Festival is the fourth and final in the dance series presented during the inaugural season of the PAC.
In addition to the “Dance Series” there are four others during the PAC’s season that run until May of 2012. Those series include Broadway shows, concerts, family oriented shows and a variety series as well as a wide range of acts in the smaller, more intimate Black Box Theatre. Information on the complete season is available at www.fmupac.org.
Tickets for the ballet begin at $30 and may be purchased at www.fmupac.org, via telephone at (843) 661-4444, and at the FMU Performing Arts Center Box Office. Telephone and personal ticket sales are available Monday through Friday between 12-5 p.m. Subject to availability, tickets may be available for purchase at the door.
The PAC is located in downtown Florence at the intersection of Dargan and Evans Streets.
