Moscow [dance] companies

4 posts in this topic

In planning a visit to Moscow June 9-19 2004,

am searching for ballet /dance companies with June performance schedules.

Have tickets for all the ballets the Bolshoi will be performing for those dates.

Are there other companies [Moscow Classical Company--extant?]

I'd appreciate any information.

There certainly are other companies based in Moscow and as far as I know Moscow Classical Ballet is still in existence. Other companies are the Stanislavsky Company based in a street called Pushkinskaya very close to the Bolshoi Theatre, The Kremlin ballet, Moscow City Ballet and Imperial Russian Ballet. As all of these tour, they may be out of Moscow in June and if you can find a website you'll probably discover it's out of date.

Checking out dance venues is helpful, but only the Stanislavky Co. has a permanent home. Several companies appear at the Palace of Congress, which is in the grounds of the Kremlin.

The best way of discovering what is on is to look at the poster charts in the windows of kiosks around the central area. They list all theatrical events for a week or month and you can often buy tickets at the same kiosk. Of course you will need some rudimentary Russian for the latter. Good luck!
