This November, catch The Masterpieces of the Ballet Russes at Dubai Opera.
SynopsisRussian Seasons of the 21st Century are all set to recreate performances of the legendary Sergei Diaghilevs Chopiniana and The Firebird in Dubai.

Presented by Dubai Opera, the two masterpieces of the Ballet Russes, by multi-award winning Artistic Director and former Bolshoi Ballet star Andris Liepa, features storytelling, music, choreography and design. There will be three mind-blowing shows held at the iconic venue on 16, 17 and 18 November.

Chopiniana is a dreamy, romantic ballet blanc that was born in St Petersburg in 1907 and moved to Paris in 1909 under the new name of Les Sylphides. Its a ballet of mood, a white ballet, a choreographic suite. It is pure, simple and requires no introduction or context.

The Firebird tells a story of sorcery, freedom and immortality with music by Igor Stravinsky and choreography by ikhail Fokine. It is based on a great variety of Russian fairy tales.

Dubai Operas Chief Executive, Jasper Hope, commented: Diaghilev`s dance company, the
Ballets Russes, was created more than a century ago but continues to inspire today. Dazzling
dancing, striking design and innovative music were the hallmarks of every performance then
and I am delighted that Dubai Opera can host this fantastic celebration of one of the worlds
greatest-ever ballet ensembles.
