IRINA KOLESNIKOVA VISITS MAJOR CITIES IN THE UK

For those who saw Irina Kolesnikova perform Odette-Odile last November at the Royal Albert Hall it will be no surprise that demand for her to repeat the performance has been enormous. It was the first time her name was advertised, and when 4,500 seats were sold out weeks before the date, it was a great achievement.
This year at Royal Albert Hall, on Monday 27th November she dances Clara in The Nutcracker and again the show is completely sold out in advance.
But Irina has many more fans all over the UK, and it is her personal wish to bring the joy of ballet to all of those people. Hardly surprising therefore, that we have scheduled similar Kolesnikova performances nationwide in some of the biggest and most prestigious theatres and halls.
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall has over 2,000 seats and Irina will dance the role of Odette-Odile on 7th January. Scotland has always been very special for the Company as Edinburgh was one of the first cities to present them.
With 2,500 seats Blackpool Opera House was the theatre in the 80’s which hosted the Kirov and Bolshoi ballet’s rare appearances outside London. The people of Blackpool will be lucky enough to see two performances of Kolesnikova when she dances Odette-Odile in Swan Lake on Sunday 3rd December, and repeats this year’s Albert Hall performance of Clara in The Nutcracker on Monday 11th December.
On January 12th & 13th at one of Europe’s most famous concert halls, Birmingham Symphony Hall, following sell out visits for the last three years, Irina Kolesnikova presents Odette-Odile from Swan Lake and Aurora in the Sleeping Beauty on the second night.
For Artsworld Presentations, witnessing the development of Kolesnikova over the last few years has been a remarkable journey. The press have reported “such is her projection she appears to be dancing merely feet away, and only for you”, which explains perfectly the unique electrifying synergy she has with her audience.
So we have been delighted to present the outstanding talents of Irina Kolesnikova to people far and wide, and next year this will include Europe where we are discussing appearances in France, Italy and Germany.

All tickets for the evening performance in Bergen are sold out.
