Applauded by audiences and critics alike, Raymonda, with the suite of this ballet, in the version by Luis Ortigoza, based on the ballet by Marius Petipa, was presented in the summer of 2019 at the Parque de las Esculturas thanks to an agreement between the Corporación Cultural de Santiago and the Corporación Cultural de Providencia.


This work, set in medieval France, is a product of fin-de-siècle exoticism and a symbolic representation of the process of imperialist expansion of nineteenth-century Russia, which sought to conquer territories in Persia and China.


Exquisite sets and beautiful costumes in this shorter and more dynamic proposal, which presents a high demand for the leading role and maintains the fundamental role of the corps de ballet, which in this case has more male presence than in the original. A story of a love threatened by war and distance that manages to overcome all obstacles to reach a happy ending.

Yuri Grigorovich, Bolshoi Ballet

White swan by day, human by night, the beautiful Odette awaits an oath of true love to break the curse. The great legend of the enigmatic swan/woman is one of the most romantic classical ballets, appropriately set in the era of courtly romance and characterised by elegance, style and harmony.


With Tchaikovsky’s famous, lyrical score, Swan Lake depicts the tragic love between Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried, and will no doubt be performed to perfection by the unparalleled virtuosity of Russia’s great Bolshoi Ballet. This universal and enchanting masterpiece of love, deception and drama is a must.
With wonderful ballerina Svetlana Zakharova, one of the most beautiful Odette / Odile of the time, Denis Rodkin, Artemy Belyakov and Bolshoi Ballet.

Marius Petipa, Yuri Grigorovich, Bolshoi Ballet

Marius Petipa’s decisive work La bayadère was first performed at the Imperial Bolshoi Kamenny Theatre in Saint Petersburg in 1877 in a grandiose production portraying a mysterious India and the impossible love between the sacred dancer Nikiya and the warrior Solor. A scene from the ballet, known as The Kingdom of the Shades, is one of the most celebrated excerpts in all of classical ballet, and is considered to be one of the first examples of abstract ballet.


Living ballet legend, Yuri Grigorovich, created this version for the Bolshoi Theatre in 1991. Nikiya, a temple dancer, has secretly sworn her eternal love to Solor, a noble warrior. When she rejects the attentions of the High Brahmin, he is furious and determines to have Solor killed.

Giselle is the classic ballet of the Romantic era. It transformed the dance world when it was first performed in Paris in 1841 and remains at the centre of the classical repertory. Giselle’s essence has remained the same through many different productions in well over a century of continuous performance. Peter Wright’s production for The Royal Ballet is based on Marius Petipa’s classic version (after the original 1841 choreography by Jules Perrot and Jean Coralli), which was first staged in St Petersburg in 1884.

Bolshoi Theatre
Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky
Bolshoi Ballet, Marius Petipa, Yury Grigorovich

First staged in 1973 by legendary choreographer Yury Grigorovich, this new version of The Sleeping Beauty, by Marius Petipa to the music by Tchaikovsky, is the first ballet performed on the newly reconstructed historical stage of the Bolshoi.


To make the fairytale come true, Yury Grigorovich and Italian set designer Ezio Frigerio work their fingers to the bone. As the curtain lifts, you find yourself literally in a 17th-century palace with rich decoration. Over 400 new costumes were specially tailored under the designs of Oscar-winning Franca Scuarcciapino, and will blind the most demanding public with glitter.


The production stars the world renown Svetlana Zakharova as Princess Aurora and David Hallberg as Prince Désiré.

Marius Petipa, Bolshoi Ballet

The Bolshoi's unique version of Coppélia showcases a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th-century choreography of this exuberant comedy involving a feisty heroine, a youthful fiancée with a wandering eye and an old dollmaker. The company's impressive corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and the famous "dance of the hours", and its leads abound with youthful energy and irresistible humour in this effervescent production.

Manuel Legris, Wiener Staatsballett

Since its very first performance 1856 at the Paris Opera, Le corsaire has been regarded as one of the most impressive narrative ballets of the 19th century. The director of the Wiener Staatsballett has choreographed a new version, basing his interpretation mainly on the rich French and Russian performance traditions. 


Action, music, choreography, scenery and costumes are carefully combined into a new overall picture which focuses on the high points of the colourful events surrounding the leading couple of Conrad and Medora.
