London Russian Ballet School, a growing vocational school founded by former Bolshoi dancer Evgeny Goremykin and Harriet Pickering and based in Clapham, south London, will be performing a programme of works at three venues in the capital in the coming weeks.
The programme, which includes the Grand Pas from Marius Petipa’s Paquita, will also feature the European premiere of Vladimir Varnava’s Siberian Tales, which – like the ballet The Stone Flower – is set in the Copper Mountains. Varnava, who has worked with Bolshoi ballerina Svetlana Zakharova, has set the ballet to the music of Aleksandra Pakhmutova’s Russian Suite. Each performance will be accompanied by the Orchestra of St Paul’s, a chamber orchestra based at St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden, and conducted by Ben Palmer.
