The Russian Ballet

Hosted by Karine Hagen

Russia is a country synonymous with ballet. Originating as a form of entertainment for the Royal Court in the mid-1700's, today Russian dancers continue to be the most sought after in the world. Equally well-known are Russia's elegant venues--The Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow and The Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. Ballet is a truly inspiring art form and no trip to Russia would be complete without experiencing it.
