Another Russian ballet company visits Botswana

Last year, the world-renowned Stars of the Ballet Moscow ended their southern African tour, with a one-night performance in Gaborone during August. Tickets were sold out in 3 days and after such success, WeSSide Entertainment and the Grand Palm Hotel Casino Convention Resort are delighted to oblige ballet and classical music enthusiasts by bringing back some of the best ballet dancers to perform at the Gaborone International Convention Centre.

The 10-year-old Crown of Ballet Moscow will perform on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th of September 2007. This year’s programme will include Carmen – George Bizet (one act ballet), Romeo and Juliet – P. Tchaikovsky (one act ballet), extract of The Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker and Symphony No5.

The Crown of the Ballet Moscow has a repertoire that includes, besides classical masterpieces, modern dance performances, which are recognised for their progressiveness in choreography. Anatoly Emelianov, who is the company’s director, and a principal dancer of the Metropolitan Ballet in the USA, stages these. His ballet is built on a classical basis but at the same time it is free of dogma and is non-traditional.

The show will accommodate 600-seated guests, who will be greeted at the reception with a traditional Russian welcome drink.

The Livingstone Restaurant will be running a special over the two nights where ticket holders can enjoy the International Buffet for P85.00 per person instead of P125. Children under the age of 12 will pay half price.

Tickets will be available from Monday 13th August at the marketing office, Walmont Ambassador Foyer ÔÇô Grand Palm Hotel. There will be no booking possible; interested members of the public will have to physically come and purchase their tickets in order to choose where they want to be seated.
Tickets are P275 for individuals, P250 for Business Club card owner and P125 for children under the age of 12.
