Lecture “An anniversary of the adventurer: who created the Russian ballet”

Classical ballet is the pride of Russia, Marius Petipa is the pride of Russian ballet: every third ballet poster in the country is named after him. Is it possible to see the real Petipa today – and what do we really know about him? He escaped from the French justice with a fake birth certificate, all his life he pointed out a fake year of birth. His late memoirs are difficult to consider reliable. The legend says that they were waiting for another Petipa in St Petersburg. Bohdan Korolek gave a lecture on the “founder of the classic Russian ballet”

Bohdan Korolek is a ballet critic, curator, an assistant of the artistic director of the Ural Opera Ballet.
