A New Dance Film by State Ballet of Georgia
Northrop welcomes the artists of State Ballet of Georgia in an original film created especially with our audiences in mind. This online performance includes gala-style excerpts of ballet repertory, interviews with Artistic Director Nina Ananiashvili and featured dancers, and footage and history of the beautiful State Opera and Ballet Theatre and City of Tbilisi. Ballets featured in the film will include Laurencia, premiered in 1939 by Vakhtang Chabukiani, a famed and beloved choreographer born in Tbilisi, Sagalobelli, a 2007 ballet choreographed to Georgian folk melodies by Vladimir 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 which had been planned for this time period.
