History of Moiseev Russian Classical Ballet

Vladimir Moiseev, General Manager | Evgeny Amosov, Artistic Director

The MOISEEV RUSSIAN CLASSICAL BALLET was founded in 1999 with the help and support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation. The company was brought together and inspired by its leaders: General Director Vladimir Moiseev, a soloist with the Bolshoi Theater and grandson of legendary Russian ballet master Igor Moiseev, and Artistic Director Evgeny Amosov. The two men once studied together at Moscow Choreography School. Years later, each of them came up with the idea of creating his own dance company and they joined their efforts to form the Russian National Ballet Theatre.

The repertoire of the company includes not only classical performances but also modern ballets. Its corps de ballet numbers 55 dancers, and is the result of a very disciplined focus on finding the most dedicated and talented dancers. A great effort has gone into providing the correct atmosphere and conditions under which to develop and perfect the artists’ mastery and creative search. The company’s main soloists range from 17 to 25 years of age. Many of them have already won international recognition and are winners of prestigious competitions. Before joining the company, most of the artists have already had the experience of working with leading ballet companies in the major cities of Russia. The company has toured Europe, the Far East, Australia and the US with great success and performs regularly in their home city of Moscow. Their US debut tour (April 2005) was a highly acclaimed with performances of Tchaikovsky’s SWAN LAKE, SLEEPING BEAUTY and Adam’s GISELLE, presented at some of the finest theaters in the country. Accompanied by a full live orchestra.
