Abu Dhabi, UAE – March 04, 2018: Poised to be an entrancing finish to the Abu Dhabi Classics 2017-2018 season, a spectacular troupe of Ukraine-based performers, the Donetsk Opera and Ballet Theatre, is set to take to the stage on Friday 20 April at the magnificent Emirates Palace, headlined by Bolshoi Soloists Ivan Vasiliev and Maria Vinogradova, alongside the first Emirati ballerina Alia Al Neyadi.
Brought to the UAE under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the United Arab Emirates, and organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, the Abu Dhabi Classics programme has successfully welcomed scores of classical music enthusiasts to concerts across some of Abu Dhabi’s most distinctive venues in the emirate.
The last performance of the season is anticipated to be a showstopper, mesmerising audiences with a captivating ballet repertoire by ballet soloists Ivan Vasiliev and Maria Vinogradova, accompanied by ballerina Alia Al Neyadi. The story, performed by the members of the Donetsk Opera and Ballet Theatre, chronicles the tale of Conrad, chief of the pirates and his love interest Medora, a young Greek woman. The performers will collectively bring to life iconic theatrical renditions of romance and adventure from Le Corsaire, a pirate tale and classical heritage ballet based on Lord Byron’s poem.
Renowned choreographer Yuri Grigorovich, who has dominated the Russian Ballet scene for more than 30 years, appears for the time in Abu Dhabi, showcasing the best of his choreographed works at the spectacular Emirates Palace.
