Recent reviews about the company from an attendee:
Dear Sirs, I am writing to thank you for bringing this Company to Bromley England. We attended the two performances (Giselle and Swan Lake) and found them to be really delightful. All of the dancers, in particular the principals Natalya Romanova, Vabim Lolenko and Evgeniy Silakov, were really super. The artistic director, Marina Medvetskaya is to be complemented on producing such stunning performances. If possible please convey our thanks and congratulations to the whole Company. Yours faithfully, Peter Doig
The “Saint-Petersburg Theatre Classic Ballet of Marina Medvetskaya” was formed in early 1996. Though a relatively new Company, the artists and staff are a cross-section of the best of the Russian tradition in Classical Ballet, in addition to actively seeking to inspire a new generation of Russian and International Choreographers to contribute repertoire. The company Artistic Director, Marina Medvetskaya, is a disciple of the legendary Vakhtang Chaboukiani and was Prima Ballerina of the Tbilisi State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre, where she danced all the leading roles in classical and contemporary works. Marina also worked with Alexander Plesetsky and with Mikhail Lavrovsky. Marina has brought her broad experience, vision and artistic standard to this unique company and soon it began to flourish. At a time of unsettling economic setbacks, she was able to attract a select group of some of the finest ballet artists from the mature companies of St. Petersburg, including the Kirov, The Maly and the St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre of Askold Makarov (Formerly “Choreographic Miniatures”). The Company’s repertoire currently consists of numerous famous Classical Compositions by choreographers such as Petipa, Ivanov, Vainonen, St. Leon, Bourneville, Gorsky, Vaganova, Jakobson, and many others, and the Company has acquired new costumes and decorations (set pieces) from the craftsmen of the legendary Mariyinsky Theatre Shops.
