The ballet Sleeping Beauty was the first collaboration between the Leonid Jacobson Ballet Theater and the famous French choreographer, teacher and dancer of the Paris Opera Jean Guillaume Bar. The choreographer has already worked in Russia. In 2007, he directed the ballet Corsair at the Yekaterinburg Opera and Ballet Theater. But in the St. Petersburg theater, the choice fell on Sleeping Beauty, especially since the Bar Danseur Etoile at one time received precisely for the performance of the role of Prince Desiree.
The world-famous dancer Johan Cobborg, who has already earned a reputation as a talented choreographer on the largest stages of the world, on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Marius Petipa, has released at the Leonid Jacobson Ballet Theater the premiere of his version of the ballet Don Quixote to the music of Ludwig Minkus.
This performance was the first ballet production in a series of anniversary events dedicated to the Year of Marius Petipa in Russia.
