Evgeny Ivanchenko and Daria Pavlenko, Principal Artists of the world-famous Mariinsky Ballet will support the very talented company of London Russian Ballet School (LRBS). This is an unmissable opportunity to see these astonishing dancers perform in London and to see a gorgeous display of original Ballets Russes costumes from a private collection. Savour the music of Shostakovich, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, Chopin and others while revelling in the magic of the dance that is as exciting today as the first Russian Season of 1909.
Also joining LRBS this evening is Igor Pugachev of the Bolshoi Ballet.
This will be a charitable fundraising evening for LRBS and its bursary programme Opening Doors. The Young Lambeth Performers will join the artists on stage in a new, specially choreographed work to Shostakovich and over 130 young children from Lambeth will attend the evening at no cost as part of the LRBS project to engage youngsters in the world of ballet.
