The Astana Ballet Theatre participated in one of the best musical festivals in the world - Stars of the White Nights, for the third time. The metropolitan troupe performed two one-act ballets at the legendary Mariinsky Theatre.  The residents and guests of St. Petersburg came to see the unique exclusively female creative team of Astana Ballet. If earlier the audience of the Mariinsky Theatre enjoyed national motives, this time Astana has brought performances staged by European choreographers.

 

The curtain opens, and Astana Ballet takes the audience into the world of magic and dance. The ballet of "Gaia" opens with bright lights and tenderness from the start to the end as it tells the story of the Earth.

 

After the touching performance, the theater staged the spectacular ballet Cleopatra.

 

Nikolay MARKELOV, CHOREOGRAPHER, RUSSIA:

 

When I first saw the girls and started to work with them I wanted to create a myth of beauty. Naturally, Cleopatra is the standard of beauty for whoever you ask in the entire world.

 

Olga ROZANOVA, PROFESSOR, RUSSIAN BALLET ACADEMY NAMED AFTER A.VAGANOVA:

 

It was a very interesting evening, original and bright, and I should say the performance was brilliant. Given that it is entirely a female troupe, they are burdened more as men do not help them, only their hands and feet create the performance. They performed brilliantly. I will say that this performance can be shown on any site, at any stage in the world.

 

Although Astana Ballet is only a few years old it has been touring extensively around the world. Experts and fans everywhere emphasize the exceptional feature of the capital's team - its openness to experiments and its willingness to mix different genres and adopt best practices.
