Seating chart & directions
Saison Russes de XXIe Siècle presents yet another stunning Gala performance in tribute to the legendary Bolshoi dancer Maris Liepa. The Maris Liepa Gala presents the only opportunity to see the Bolshoi and Mariinsky Ballet companies world-celebrated dancers perform in the capital.
As a dancer Liepa was a great individualist, fusing drama and dance to dazzling effect. A highly intellectual performer, he went to great pains to achieve and portray depth in his interpretations. His work lives on through the passion of two of his children, Ilze and Andris, both of whom have danced with the Bolshoi and further their father's fervour for historic Russian Ballet and teaching through their direction of the Maris Liepa Charitable Foundation. Here they celebrate pay ultimate homage to their father's life, talent and irrepressible spirit as Andris takes on the role of the Gala's artistic director, and Ilze performs some of her father's most celebrated roles on stage.
