Russian Academic Youth Theater has hosted the 18th annual fixture of Summer Ballet Seasons 2018
When repertory theaters go off-season, a unique ballet marathon
starts on Moscow's cultural map. Every day over two months, the RAMT was home to masterpieces of global ballet art. This included three ballets by Pyotr Tchaikovsky – Swan Lake (traditionally opening and completing the Seasons), The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, as well as Giselle by Adolphe Adam, Don Quixote by Ludwig Minkus, Romeo and Juliet and Cinderella by Sergei Prokofiev, etc. in classical versions by Russia's top choreographers – Marius Petipa, Vasili Vainonen, Leonid Lavrovsky, as well as in modern choreography reserving the classical basis.
