Experience the beauty and athleticism of classic dance at its finest when the Russian National Ballet performs at Music Hall Center on Friday, Jan. 11. The program includes “Romeo and Juliet” and “Chopiniana,” an interpretive dance inspired by Frederic Chopin’s seventh waltz.

Founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, the company used their new-found creative freedom, influenced by the political movement, to invigorate the tradition of Russian Ballet with new developments in dance from around the world. In 1994, the legendary Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko was selected by Presidential decree to assume the first permanent artistic directorship of the company.
