Chisinau National Ballet

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know anything about this company? They are coming to Bristol in January but the only reviews I can find are poor ones of their production of Grigorovich's Nutcracker. They are bringing that to Bristol but I thought I might try their Petipa's Swan Lake (in the cheap seats if they're not that good). I think they are struggling to sell tickets (which is very unusual for Bristol) because I keep getting promotional gumph in the mail.

I'm starving for some live ballet and can't afford to go to London at the moment, so I was thinking that maybe not so good ballet was better than none at all :confused: .

Can anyone help?

Chisinau is the capital city of Moldova. Professional ballet began there in 1957, with its original core members having been trained in St Petersburg. In 1998, choreographer Yuri Grigorovich joined the company, which has been brought to Britain several times in recent years by Ellen Kent & Ballet International.

I've seen them perform "Sleeping Beauty" and "Swan Lake", amongst other ballets. I wouldn't say they're the best company I've seen - certainly not when compared to the wonderful English National Ballet - but they are well worth seeing if opportunity arises.
