Northrop Presents The State Ballet of Georgia Today

August 12 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Free

Back by popular demand, The State Ballet of Georgia’s original film gets an encore on Northrop’s plaza in a special outdoor screening. Created specifically for Northrop audiences, this peek at the Georgian ballet company features gala-style excerpts of ballet repertory, interviews with Artistic Director Nina Ananiashvili and featured dancers, and breathtaking views of the State Opera and Ballet Theatre and the city of Tbilisi. The film’s featured ballet repertory includes clips from a number of ballets including Laurencia, premiered in 1939 by Vakhtang Chabukiani; Sagalobeli, a 2007 ballet choreographed to Georgian folk melodies by Yuri Possokhov; Leonid Lavrovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, which was the first full version choreographed to Prokofiev’s score; and a taste of The State Ballet of Georgia’s Giselle.
