  • The show will feature “Fraceska da Rimini,” a one-act ballet that will be performed for the first time in southern Africa with choreography by Anatoly Emelianov


OP Advertising, in association with Edouard Miasnikov Agencies, will bring the Royal Moscow Ballet back to Botswana on March 7 at GICC for a performance that will transport the audience to a place of romance beyond imagination.

Founded by principal dancer and choreographer Anatoly Emelianov and creative director Anna Alexidze in 2002, the Royal Moscow Ballet has given more than 1000 performances around the globe.

The acts packaged for GICC are designed as a tribute to the great Russian composer, Piotr Tchaikovsky. They include “Serenade,” a one-act ballet that will be followed by Black Pas de Deux from the ballet “Swan Lake,” and “Fraceska da Rimini,” a one-act ballet that will be performed for the first time in southern Africa with choreography by Anatoly Emelianov.

The opening act will be a performance by the children of Botswana-based ballet school, Risa Ballet, that has been running for over 40 years. Batswana children at primary and secondary school levels have been taught ballet under the directors of the school, Rita Lee and Elizabeth Lee.

The Royal Moscow Ballet is presented in southern Africa by Edouard Miasnikov Agency whose objective is to widen cultural exchange and sharing between Russia and southern Africa.

This year Capital Bank Botswana is the main sponsor of the Royal Moscow Ballet 2018.  Said the bank’s CEO, Jaco Viljoen: “We are proud of our association with the Royal Moscow Ballet as we recognise the significant appeal it holds for our customers and the wider Botswana public. An event such as this has the ability to bring together a variety of stakeholders from the business and social communities and further spotlight our vibrant city of Gaborone as an attractive location for the global arts industry.”
