Ballet Moscow is one of the most interesting choreographic theaters in Russia. Its repertoire combines classical ballet and contemporary choreography performed by some of Russia's best dancers.
The majority of productions are original works of Russian and foreign choreographers, created especially for Ballet Moscow dancers.
For his new work with Ballet Moscow's current troupe, Ihsan Rustem from England chose Franz Schubert's iconic piece String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, known as Death and the Maiden. The choreographer suggested that the troupe performed “as if it was their last dance” because String Quartet No. 14 was one of Schubert's last compositions.
Ballet Moscow's choreographers Anastasia Kadruleva and Artem Ignatiev collaborated with French composer Anthony Rouchier and stage designer Dmitry Razumov to create a unique choreographic play Waiting for Godot, adapted from Samuel Beckett's play. The production received the Golden Mask award.
Ballet Moscow does not have a permanent location and stages its performances in Moscow's leading theaters.
