The evening opens with Yuri Possokhov’s masterpiece Francesca da Rimini. Set to Tchaikovsky’s symphonic poem, it tells the story of the tragic lovers from Dante’s Inferno condemned to eternal punishment.

Rain before it falls, choreographed by Patrick de Bana is a ballet which concerns the struggle with the choice between darkness and light. It is set to classical sounds by Bach and Respighi decorated with modern electronic music tapestry by Pina-Quintana.

The third piece features Svetlana Zakharova supported by five male dancers. Set to Mozart’s Symphony No.40, Strokes Through the Tail is a humorous piece choreographed by Marguerite Donlon, providing the perfect ending to the evening. Part of the fun is costumes by fashion designer Igor Chapurin who also created the costumes for the unforgettable Francesca.
