- What’s On
The St Petersburg Ballet Theatre will stage three different ballets over the course of four days. There will be two performances of Swan Lake (March 17 and 18), and one performance each of Giselle (March 19) and Sleeping Beauty (March 20).
Founded by Konstantin Tachkin in 1994, the St Petersburg Ballet Theatre is one of the leading classical ballet companies in the world. The company has previously performed in Istanbul. However, this year’s performance was moved from December 2015 to March 2016 in response to the current political tension between Russia and Turkey.
