Sergei Radchenko, legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, founded the Moscow Festival Ballet in 1989. He sought to realize his vision of a company which would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies in an independent new company within the framework of Russian classic ballet. Leading dancers from across Russia, under Radchenko’s direction, have forged an exciting new company staging new productions of timeless classics.
