Opposites attract

The Theatre of Russian Ballet Moscowia will bring a story of passion, scandal and tragedy on Sunday with Fatal Love.

The ballet will bring to the stage the story of two lovers, Russian lyrical poet Sergey Esenin and American dancer Isadora Duncan – who was 18-years his senior.

She did not know Russian and he did not know English but, with the language of love, they communicated just fine.

The couple met in 1921 and were married the following year. She did not understand his poetry and he did not see why she was so passionate about moving dance forward. They didn’t have much in common and yet, their coming together was meant to be and in their differences lies a great love story.

Moscowia’s production is directed by a former principal artist of the Bolshoi Ballet, Stanislav Vlasov and staged by artistic director Liliya Sabitova. Bringing together virtuoso dancing and enchanting choreography the ballet re-ignites the wit of the famous Russian poet and the revolutionary moves of the dancer.

The performance is dedicated to the 40-year partnership between Vlasov and Sabitova.

Fatal Love
Ballet performance by the Russian Ballet Moscowia. June 26. Curium Ancient Theatre, Limassol. 9pm. €15/10. Tel: 99-157379
