Perhaps the most dazzling dance duet of the international ballet repertoire, this “pas de deux” is a supreme demonstration of the challenge of Petipa’s style – steel pointe work, sharply accented spinning turns, soaring leaps, high extensions, brilliant batterie, and daring lifts.
The Trockadero dedicates Grand Pas Classique to the imperial and gracious Gabriella Komleva and the refulgent Yuri Soloviev, virtuosi stars of the Kirov Ballet.
