"Think of it as a sort of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ but with an international flavor and focusing on a particularly timeless style of dance.” — The Las Vegas Review-Journal
      Lehman Center for the Performing Arts has built a reputation for being a house for international dance and proudly present Stars of the Russian Ballet, a company of dancers performing a program of “best of” dance pieces from Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Don Quixote, Le Corsaire and other fan favorites and highlights from some of the world's greatest ballets. The company performs on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 4pm at Lehman Center for the Performing Arts, 250 Bedford Park Boulevard West, Bronx, NY.
Stars of the Russian Ballet brings a greatest hits of solos, pas de deux and ensemble pieces danced to the classical music of Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Saint-Saens. From the Rose Adagio from The Sleeping Beauty, to the adagio from the third act of Cinderella and a pas de deux from Romeo and Juliet, ballet master Alexander Daev said in the Las Vegas Journal-Review that what makes these works so endearing and enduring is “because they are human, romantic stories about love, loss and eternal themes. The ballets' themes also are universal and resonate with audiences regardless of language, nationality, culture or, even, the times. It also helps that the pieces' choreography and music are so beautiful, everybody gets it."
The legendary Sergei Radchenko, former soloist with the Bolshoi Ballet and artistic director and co-founder of Moscow Festival Ballet, leads this 30-member, Moscow-based company of dancers who have been garnering rave reviews across the country and the world.  Radchenko graduated from the Moscow School of Dance in 1964 and then joined the Bolshoi Ballet, where he worked for 25 years. He danced the entire repertoire at the Bolshoi, but enjoyed a special reputation for Spanish dance. He has achieved a remarkable feat in the establishment and development of young, great Russian ballet dancers.
