The Moscow Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 by Sergei Radchenko, the legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, to bring together elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies.
Under Radchenko’s direction the company has staged exciting new productions of such timeless classics such as “Giselle,” “Don Quixote,” “Paquita” and “Carmen.” In addition, the company has commissioned new works from within Russia and abroad, and it specializes in 20th century full-length ballets, including “Cinderella,” “Romeo and Juliet,” “Legend of Love,” “Stone Flower” and “The Golden Age.”
Since its inception, the Moscow Festival Ballet has completed two tours of Europe and has toured extensively throughout the United States. The company recently completed a two-month tour of Japan, Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong.
