Russian ballet company to perform two shows
ON SATURDAY, THE RUSSIAN National Ballet performs “Sleeping Beauty” featuring its two greatest stars, Tatiana Andreeva as Princess Aurora and Norlan
Abugaliyev as Prince Desire.

let's music, shaping his dances along its structure.
Sergei Radchenko, a former dancer with the
Bolshoi Ballet, now serves the Russian National
Ballet as artistic director. The only member of the
company who speaks English, Radchenko acts as
spokesman on its American tour.
When mounting a classic production like
“Swan Lake" or “Sleeping Beauty,” Radchenko
relies on the memory of the ballet’s former
dancers. He does not trust videotapes or dance
notation to revive the essence of a ballet.
“You must work with teachers. If you use other
methods, it’s only mechanically adopting. You
never understand the use of classical line in bal
let,” he said.
Dancers for a revival spend two to three
months working with the ballet’s former dancers.
They must learn not only the steps but also the
style of the choreography.
“They must be one clockwork machine,”
Because the process is so intense, Radchenko
finds it easier to work with soloists than a corps;
with a corps of dancers, the need for precision and
uniformity compounds the struggle for expres
Radchenko believes American audiences
should see Russian ballets in their original form
for a number of reasons.
First, American dance is not without its
Russian influences. American ballet, in particular,
has much to attribute to Russian ballet.
Radchenko cited George Balanchine, the
founder of the New York City Ballet, as an exam
Balanchine studied in Russia at the Imperial
School of Ballet before coming to America in
1933. In the United States, he became the father of
neoclassicism, fusing the ideas of classic ballet
with the newer, freer forms of dance he encoun
tered in America.
“He is the god of choreography of the United
States. His basis he got in Russia,” Radchenko
In addition to seeing and understanding bal
let’s heritage, audiences cherish the romantic sto
ries of “Swan Lake” and “Sleeping Beauty,”
In “Swan Lake,” a young prince falls in love
with a beautiful maiden who has been turned into
a swan by an evil sorcerer. Through the strength of
their true love, they are able to overcome the power
of the sorcerer.
The fairy tale classic “Sleeping Beauty” tells
the story of a young princess. This ballet, often
considered Petipa’s crowning achievement, capi
talizes on the grand, lavish premises of romantic
Though American audiences may be familiar
with these two ballets, this will be the first chance
for Americans to see the Russian National Ballet,
as this is the company’s first visit to the United
Radchenko said the tour is evidence of the nar
rowing gulf between American dance and Russian
“A lot of star Russian dancers are dancing in
America, and the classical dancing methods of
teaching in America are similar to what we have in
Russia,” he explained.
Unfortunately, Russian National Ballet
dancers will have few opportunities to see
American dance while they are here.
“Our touring schedule is too rigorous. We go
without stopping,” Radchenko said.
So far, Radchenko has felt audiences have
been very receptive to the company’s perfor
“Everyone in America loves ballet. They’re
very open. If they like, they like. If they don’t, they
don’t,” he said.
