Mikhailovsky Ballet of St. Petersburg to Perform in Hong Kong

The Hong Kong Arts Festival (HKAF) has confirmed that the Mikhailovsky Ballet of St Petersburg, Russia will replace the Berlin State Ballet to perform The Sleeping Beauty at the 44th HKAF in 2016.

The Berlin State Ballet withdrew their performances in Hong Kong due to unforeseen circumstances within the company.

The Mikhailovsky Theatre presented the world premiere of The Sleeping Beauty on 16 December 2011. It was especially created for this company by renowned Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato, their then Artistic Director of Ballet.

The Mikhailovsky Ballet, brought to prominence by Artistic Director Fyodor Lopukhov in the 1930s, is well regarded at home and abroad. The company is led by Ballet Master-in-Chief Mikhail Messerer, and forms a triumvirate of great Russian ballet companies along with the Bolshoi Ballet and Mariinsky Ballet.

The Mikhailovsky Ballet of St Petersburg will perform in Hong Kong between 17 and 20 March 2016. Advance booking will begin 8 October 2015.
