The closer we get to the date of the Stars Gala, the more active and vivid gets communication with the stars, their agents and companies. All the continents are in this network. Yet, as usual, we are not going to reveal the names of the étoiles who are awaited April, 29 at the Alexandrinsky stage. Yes, here is a cat in the sack once again, but… if to take a glance at the bill of the season, maybe it be a cat of Cheshire???
We trust that the lucky star will bless our Star Gala, and all the plans will come true. Numerous surprises and unexpected turns are guaranteed.
Taking a curtain slightly up, we may confess that each year Gala Dance Open turns to be a disaster. It’s a vigorous whirlwind of ideas, endless changes, exchanges and shifts in a search of that special, unique, perfect “golden cast” which will sharply hit the point. This Gala is whatever else, but not a solemn academic museum of dance. It’s an investigation, a dance adventure which is lasting the whole year through and which culminates and terminates the day of the final rehearsal. The Gala house bills always smell with ink, because we never issue them in advance: they arrive from the printer just few hours before the beginning. You see, enlightenment and inspiration do not follow a schedule. On the other hand, through the 18 years of the festival they have never missed the minute to arrive as brightly as possible. And let it happen every April.
Dance Open is a unique ballet forum. The Gala gives an opportunity to estimate the level of leading dancers of the world.
Putting emphasis on the unlimited opportunities of a Gala as of a stage form, Dance Open festival succeeded to turn usual mosaic divertissement into an ideal “golden puzzle”.
Dance Open Gala allows to go beyond the time and space limits, to be impressed with the most memorable experiences of the ballet history and the most radical futuristic experiments.
