EDMONTON, Nov. 16 /CNW/ - Moscow Ballet's endearing 2009 tour has arrived, presenting Edmonton audiences with its Great Russian Cinderella, November 16 and 17.
With 44 local ballerinas, this family-friendly production features principal dancers, Ekaterina Bortykova and Akzhol Mussahanov; and the soulful opening ballads of singer/songwriter/Canadian Idol finalist, Jenn Beaupre.
"If you are a ballet lover, then the Russian-style is yet anther muse to admire ballet through," explains Stacey Tookey, Edmontonian and acclaimed choreographer of So You Think You Can Dance Canada (and USA). "The Moscow Ballet is known for its charming accessibility and comedic presentation."
Entertaining audiences since 1993, this year's Moscow Ballet North American Tour is scheduled to hit seventy cities in the United States and Canada, with two hundred costumes and folkloric backdrops lovingly designed and handcrafted in St. Petersburg.
Since 2007, Moscow Ballet's Canadian tour has sprinkled magic on Alberta-based drug and alcohol treatment centre, Recovery Acres Society. Proceeds from the tour are helping Recovery Acres raise $10 million in capital funding to build a second facility.
The Great Russian Cinderella is presented at Edmonton's Northern Jubilee Auditorium, November 16 and 17. Discounts offered to seniors, students and children. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster Canada.
