Event Details

Dubai Opera presents two masterpieces of the Ballet Russes, by multi-award winning Artistic Director and former Bolshoi Ballet star Andris Liepa.
Be swept away in a celebration of one of the world’s greatest-ever ballet ensembles, recreating performances of the legendary Sergei Diaghilev’s Chopiniana and The Firebird, in three incredible evenings.
Chopiniana is a dreamy, romantic ballet blanc that was born in St Petersburg in 1907 and moved to Paris in 1909 under the new name of Les Sylphides. Fokine’s choreography, set to music by Chopin, was introduced to the public in 1893 and conducted by Rimsky-Korsakov. “It defies an obvious single label – it’s a ballet of mood, a white ballet, a choreographic suite. It is pure, simple and requires no introduction or context.”
The Firebird tells a story of sorcery, freedom and immortality with music by Igor Stravinsky and choreography by Мikhail Fokine. It is based on a great variety of Russian fairy tales. Fokine, the author of libretto, was primarily attracted by the mysterious Firebird whose astonishing fiery flights are described in quite a few fairy tales. The first act opens with twilight and a tremendous horseman – the Night and leads into scenes of abduction and the triumph of beauty and boldness over evil.
