Events in Saint Petersburg - April 2019

Dance Open 2019 (17-29.04.19)

Modern ballet, timeless classics and dance “trips”, ballet vintage, the hypnotic dances of the Mad Hatter and the Nutcracker can be seen from April 17 to 29, 2019 in the Alexandrinsky Theater at the Dance Open ballet festival.

Every year this festival brings to St. Petersburg those who are creating the history of modern ballet right now, and each time there is not a single “play-through” production in the playbill. The secret is that over the 18 years of Dance Open’s existence, the experts involved in its program have learned not only to negotiate with troupes whose tour schedule has been agreed for decades to come, but also to accurately select performances for different audiences. This means that at the Dance Open you can see not only modern choreography, contemporary and avant-garde performances at the junction with performance art, but also classics with filigree fouetté and pas de chat.
In addition, as part of the festival, every year there is a series of master classes for those who are not only interested, but also study ballet, and in the finals the participants of the educational program — students of ballet schools from all over the world from 7 to 20 years old — perform in the traditional Gala Dance Open young stars.
