Perm ballet crowning Cote d'Azur festival

A new version of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker performed by the Perm School of Choreography has provided a spectacular finale for the 15th Festival of Russian Art which was held at the Cannes Palace in Cote d’Azur.

The Perm choreographers dedicated the new production to the 120th anniversary of The Nutcracker’s premiere in Russia.

Singer Maria Maksakova and the Academy of the Young Singers of the Mariinsky Theatre represented the Russian opera school at the festival.

The festival’s film program featured a retrospective of films by Andrey Tarkovsky, whose work produced a lasting effect on the Russian and French schools of cinematography.
