Dance Review: St. Petersburg Ballet

On its first tour to Israel, this 20-year-old ballet company based in St. Petersburg performed two of the greatest 19th century classical ballets – Giselle and Swan Lake. This is an exceptionally long tour that took in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa and Beersheba.

The company, founded by Konstantin Tchakin, tours a lot abroad, and its growing reputation is based mainly on its veteran star ballerina Irina Kolesnikova, who has been with the company for 18 years, and unfortunately has no match in the company.
