"BALLET. BEHIND THE SCENES"
"BALLET. BEHIND THE SCENES"

The exhibition will shed light on the process of ballet performance creation, from creative conception to its realization on stage. The exhibits plunge visitors into the history of St. Petersburg ballet school, from Giselle to Konyok-Gorbunok (The Little Humpbacked Horse) to Swan Lake and Petrushka. The exhibition is accompanied by interactive program and a special game space, which should attract both adults and children. "Ballet. Behind the Scenes" is a touch to a mysterious world of theatre backstage, a golden opportunity to assist a ballet rehearsal, to hold in hands and even to try on a ballet shoe, to see old photos of dancers captured in a workflow “without gloss”. The exhibits will help draw a wider picture of ballet performance creation, from the conception embodied in libretto, the processes of scenery and costume designs making, orchestral score creation and rehearsals to premiere.
