The power of love and lust

The Ballet Theatre Moscowia and the Moscow Fine Arts Ballet will perform two dance performances at the Municipal Garden Theatre in Limassol over the week.

The first is Three nights of Cleopatra, which will be performed on Friday. The ballet is set during a feast held in honour of Cleopatra. The guests admire the beauty and charm of the Queen of Egypt and emotions are high. The queen decides to take a lover for the night while her husband is away, but the man she chooses will have to pay the price with his life.

The second performance by the Russian ballet groups is Under the Sky of Tango on Sunday.

The performance is based on the music by tango composers Astor Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel, and tells the story of everlasting love.

Under the Sky of Tango is the name of a nightclub where our protagonist meets a dancer and falls in love. The feeling is mutual but the club owner isn’t having it and tragedy strikes. Death may separate them but their love for tango music will always unite them.
