For the sixth time this century our Ballet Company is going to perform in London. It has become a great tradition that the Bolshoi Ballet opens a season at the Royal Opera House at the turn of July and August (let not every year but every second or third year). It means that a great number of our productions – and the most exiting productions – we have already run in London. Therefore, what can we do to astound British audiences? In our opinion, the answer is self-evident. The most impressing treasure we have is our amazing artists.

In 2019, Bolshoi ballet introduces the talents of every possible generation! Many of them have numerous fans among the British balletomanes, and the orthers may come as a surprise to them. Svetlana Zakharova, Ekaterina Shipulina, Ekaterina Krysanova, Anna Nikulina, Yulia Stepanova, Olga Smirnova, Daria Khokhlova, Ruslan Skvortsov, Artem Ovcharenko, Semyon Chudin, Denis Rodkin, Igor Tsvirko, Artemy Belyakov – and Alyona Kovalyova, Eleonora Sevenard, Margarita Shrayner, Anastasia Denisova, Jacopo Tissi, Davia Motta Soares (to be continued)… We hope that owing to the forthcoming Bolshoi Ballet season in London the ballet world will discover new stars in our theatre.

For the first time in sixty years the Bolshoi Ballet season will run in the absence of the legendary impresario Victor Hochhauser who passed away in March. In loving memory of him. But the great cultural exchange he helped to organize is going on. The Bolshoi again flies to London!
