Maris Liepa Gala Synopsis

With international guests featuring, amongst othere the Bolshoi Ballet's


and Mariinsky Theatre's


Following the sensational success of the Diaghilev Festival in 2011 - celebrating many of the impresario's original commissions that have become a major part of the Bolshoi's repertoire - Saison Russes de XXIe Siecle presents yet another stunning Gala performance at London's Coliseum, this time in tribute to the legendary Bolshoi dancer Maris Liepa.

In a summer season that sees no full company visits to London by either the Bolshoi or Mariinsky Ballet companies, the Maris Liepa Gala presents the only opportunity to see their world-celebrated dancers perform in the capital.

As a dancer Liepa was a great individualist, fusing drama and dance to dazzling effect. A highly intellectual performer, he went to great pains to achieve and portray depth in his interpretations. His work lives on through the passion of two of his children, Ilze and Andris, both of whom have danced with the Bolshoi and further their father's fervour for historic Russian Ballet and teaching through their direction of the Maris Liepa Charitable Foundation. Here they celebrate pay ultimate homage to their father's life, talent and irrepressible spirit as Andris takes on the role of the Gala's artistic director, and Ilze performs some of her father's most celebrated roles on stage.
