[ABOUT ROMEO & JULIET]
The idea of ​​creating the play belonged to Elena Radchenko, who is also a choreographer and co-author of probably the music for the ballet. Helen went to the production of the play is very creative. She used the works of Tchaikovsky: fantasy-overture and the Symphony number 6 in B minor, Op. 74. Merged some parts of both works, and you get a full one-act ballet that is unique in its kind. Scenery designer, Sergei Radchenko is. choreographed fight scenes staged Alexander Daev. Premiered in 2010 in Moscow.

[ABOUT CHOPINIANA]
Chopiniana grew out of Chopin’s Seventh Waltz and had its premiere on February 23, 1907. The favorite oeuvre of its creator, Mikhail Fokine, this work has now become standard repertoire for many of the world’s leading theatres.

Chopiniana does not have a traditional plot. The curtain opens to reveal a picturesque group of ballerinas, frozen in anticipation, the embodiment of the Young Man’s dream. The women rise like a romantic vision, circle around the Young Man, spread out like a light fog and then freeze again in their original poses.

This ballet is in one regard, a timeless poetic example of stylization, and in another, a work set distinctly in its own period. Fokine incorporated the cultural experiences of the past and the blossoming ideas of the present, thus saturating the work with universal significance. It is not the characters in the ballet that develop, but rather the themes, moods, and feeling
