A unique program acquaints the viewer with choreographic masterpieces staged by the genius ballet master of the 20th century Leonid Yakobson, whose name the theater bears. In addition to the refined miniatures from the Classicism-Romanticism cycle, which formed the basis of the program, the one-act ballet The Wedding Cortege, inspired by the aesthetics of Marc Chagall's early works, has always remained the audience's favorite. Prominent critic and historian of ballet Olga Fedorchenko will tell about the creative path of Leonid Yakobson.
An additional bonus for the viewer will be the opportunity to enjoy the luxurious interiors of the Hermitage Theater, created by the Italian architect Giacomo Quarenghi by order of Empress Catherine II. Once upon a time, the stars of the world stage shone here and the flower of St. Petersburg society gathered here. The Hermitage Theater preserves these traditions to this day.
