Russian ballet is a trademark. So is the innate desire of Russian artists to experiment.
Ural Opera Ballet theatre has stepped beyond the laws of classical ballet and taken a new, bolder look on the performance “The Humpbacked Horse” dating back to 1912.
Combine the incombinable. Add a dancing horse. Invite a rap band to lead the show. Sprinkle it all with stunning decorations and costumes — and you get a unique eclectic performance on the border between tradition and futurism.
However, almost a year of empty hall seats has made it difficult to finance production of stage props, costumes and decorations. The theatre is inviting all ballet afficionados to take their place in the history of ballet. “The Humpbacked Horse” won’t happen without you.
