2013-2014 Season at Segerstrom Center for the Arts

The International Dance Series includes performances from Diana Vishneva, Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and Natalia Ospiova & Ivan Vasiliev.


Diana Vishneva: On The Edge
World Premiere Event
November 6, 7, 9 & 10, 2013

Carolyn Carlson and Jean-Christophe Maillot

Diana Vishneva, internationally acclaimed and award-winning prima ballerina of the Mariinsky Theatre and American Ballet Theatre, returns to Segerstrom Center in a special world premiere event to showcase her remarkable virtuosity. The program will include all new works choreographed for her by Carolyn Carlson, director of National Centre for Contemporary Choreography in Roubaix and of the Atelier de Paris at La Cartoucherie de Vincennes in Paris and Jean-Christophe Maillot, choreographer-director of Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo. Karl Lagerfeld will design her costumes.

Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev
January 24–26, 2014

Marcelo Gomes – World Premiere
Maurius Petipa – from final scene of La Bayadère
Roland Petit - Le Jeune Homme et la mort

Natalia Ospiova, prima ballerina of American Ballet Theatre and the Royal Ballet, and Ivan Vasiliev, a principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre, are without peers as today's greatest dance couple. They perform throughout the world to sold-out houses and standing ovations, including many performances at Segerstrom Center. During their return to the Center, they will perform The Kingdom of the Shades scene from Petipa's La Bayadère, Petit's Le Jeune Homme et la mort as well as a world premiere by Marcelo Gomes, principal dancer with American Ballet Theater. Gomes, who is expanding his additional career as choreographer, also created a work for Kings of the Dance in 2011 featuring Ivan Vasiliev.

>> I'm trying to visualize how Osipova will dance the Kingdom of the Shades by her lonesome - perhaps with mirrors? ;)
So there must be a ballet corps in there somewhere...
