The Ballet Moscow is one of the strongest choreographic companies in Russia and the only professional contemporary dance theater in Moscow. In the fall of 2022, we became part of The Novaya Opera.
Novaya Opera and Ballet Moscow are peer theaters that brightly appeared in the cultural life of Moscow at the turn of the 20th century. The artistic aspirations of the two troupes are based on constant renewal, the search for new names, the need for an aesthetic combination of classics and innovation. The experience of uniting the troupe of modern dance and opera became an organic continuation of the development line of both theaters.
In the new repertoire strategy, Ballet Moscow retains attention to the traditional genres of dance theater, avant-garde searches in the field of visual theatrical technologies, choreographic relevance and performance expressiveness. An important vector of the theater’s work was the support of a new generation of contemporary dance artists.
