After a huge success in Europe, The Crystal Palace Ballet marks its Middle-East première at Dubai Opera in a production by SAMIT Event Group in collaboration with the European Foundation for Support of Culture from Thursday 17 to Saturday 19 February 2022.
Inspired by a true story, “Crystal Palace Ballet” is a fantastic ballet with operatic elements, featuring dancers and musicians from the legendary Bolshoi Theatre, home to one of the most renowned – and by far the largest – ballet companies in the world.
Set in 1740, Crystal Palace takes us to the court of Empress Anna Ioanovna in the Russian capital, where preparations for a grand event are ongoing.
The celebrations are at the order of the Empress, who, upon learning of one of her court maidens love towards the court jester, decides to celebrate their marriage.
Little did the young couple know that they were going to spend their wedding night in an ice palace built for them as a wedding ‘gift’ from the Empress.
Based on the music of the contemporary Maltese composer Alexey Shor, Crystal Palace is brought to life by a star-studded lineup of Bolshoi Theatre ballet dancers and artists.
The production will also feature Bolshoi Opera soprano Anna Aglatova and conductor Pavel Klinichev, leading the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra.
Thursday 17 to Saturday 19 February 2022 from 8pm.
All times are approximate, running time is 125 mins with intermission
