Russian National Ballet to Perform "Sleeping Beauty"
By: Fort Myers Community Concert Association
"This is very rare opportunity to see world-class ballet dancers in person," said Fort Myers Community Association President Mary Lee Mann. "The Russian National Ballet is known for their luminous costumes and elaborate sets that complement the graceful movements of these gifted Russian dancers."
The Russian National Ballet is one of Moscow's finest ballet companies and will perform the timeless fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and invigorates the tradition of classical Russian ballet with developments in dance from around the world.
The Russian National Ballet is the fourth of five classical performances to be presented this season by the Fort Myers Community Concert Association.
Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. concert are available at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall by visiting https://barbarabmann.ticketsoffice.org or by calling the box office at 239-481-4849.
The remaining concert is the Siberian Virtuoso, a group of 10 violinists and a pianist, who will be in Fort Myers March 19. This performance replaces one by the Siberian State Symphony Orchestra January 27 that was canceled due to a problem obtaining visas to travel to the U.S. Ticket-holders may use their same January 27 tickets for the March 19 performance.
