Founded by legendary dancer and former Prima Ballerina of The Bolshoi Theatre Ballet, Maya Plisetskaya, The State Ballet Theatre of Russia, now under the direction of award-winning dancer and Moiseyev Dance Company soloist Nikolay Anokhin, presents the most passionate love story Ballet.  Music is by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Choreography by Marius Petipa.
