New Production / Ballet in three acts by Vladimir Varnava. Music by Boris Tishchenko. Libretto by Vladimir Varnava and Konstantin Fyodorov.
Boris Tishchenko wrote the ballet Yaroslavna in 1974 for the Maly Opera Theatre in Leningrad. The production choreographed by Oleg Vinogradov and directed by Yuri Lyubimov was one of the ballet highlights of the 1970s. The innovative masterpiece was acclaimed not only by the Soviet public and critics, but also by the guests of the prestigious Festival d’Avignon. At the core of the production lies a radically different interpretation of The Tale of Igor’s Campaign from the one we have seen in the opera Prince Igor. Vladimir Varnava is to bring back Tishchenko’s work with new choreography. Varnava is one of the most popular and hard-working choreographers in Russia.
