THE BEAUTY OF MOVEMENT BEARS THE NAME OF ZAKHAROVA

Internationally acclaimed Svetlana Zakharova, lead ballerina with the Bolshoi Theatre and star of the Teatro alla Scala ballet, will be presenting Amore at the Peralada Festival, in a single performance, the first in Spain. A leading figure of twenty-first-century ballet, Zakharova is famous not only for her sublime performances of the major classical roles but also for her work in contemporary choreography. For this show, the Russian ballerina has commissioned three world-famous choreographers to create a work that allows her to experiment with both contemporary and classical at the same time. Accompanied by some of the greatest stars of the Bolshoi Theatre, such as Mikhail Lobukhin, Denis Rodkin and Denis Savin, and also by choreographer and dancer Patrick de Bana, the evening begins with Francesca da Rímini by Yuri Possokov, a masterpiece based on Tchaikovsky’s symphonic poem, which focuses on the story of the tragic lovers of Dante’s Inferno in The Divine Comedy. This is followed by Rain Before It Falls by Patrick de Bana, the battle with oneself when faced with the choice between darkness and light, with music by Johann Sebastian Bach, Ottorino Respighi and Carlos Quintana-Pina. The evening finishes with Strokes Through The Tail, a hugely fun and delicious piece by Marguerite Donlon to the sound of Mozart’s Symphony No. 40. A unique opportunity to enjoy this goddess of the meticulous.
