In the first part of the project — “Francesca
da Rimini” by Tchaikovsky staged by Yury Posokhova Zakharova will dance on your fingers. In the second part — in created specially for Svetlana Patrick de Bana’s ballet “While
the rain came” and in the hilarious third part — the production of “Strokes through the tail” of the choreographer, Dona Margarita Zakharova will dress in soft ballet shoes.

By the way, was the program itself prima. “For the first time in my life I had such freedom to choose, and music, and choreographers with whom I wanted to work,” — says Zakharov. Among the authors of the statement also fashion designer Igor Chapurin, who made the costumes for the first and third parts of the project.

Three one-act ballets a year ago already showed in Moscow (after which “Amore” has toured in different countries). Then the tickets were sold out in two days. Therefore, the organizers (the company “MuzArts”) decided to repeat the program in the capital again.

And on March 28 in GTSKZ “Russia” in Luzhniki Zakharova will open your personalized
charity festival “Svetlana”, which will arrive 600 young dancers
from across the country. The festival is held for the third time. And if earlier Zakharova itself invited participants, today dance groups themselves send the video proposals. “And we have a big problem: how to select from hundreds of great bands a half dozen of the best — jokingly complains Zakharova. This year we selected 17 ensembles: not only two capitals, but also from Magnitogorsk, Orenburg,
Kerch, Ulyanovsk and other cities.”

As admitted Svetlana, for her childhood trips to festivals and concerts in different cities was so impressive that she remembers them much better than other performances in the star in the famous theatres. And the idea to create something for children it was filed by the mother (which at one time led the World in ballet and have devoted my entire life to help her daughter to reach the heights in ballet). Young Galina directed the children’s dance Studio, the creation of such ensembles is especially close to her. By the way, the festival of talented children not only show their art but also take part in seminars and master classes.
