Spring Waters

Music by: Serge Rachmaninoff
Choreography after: Assaf Messerer
Costumes by: Mike Gonzales

The decadent revival of acrobatics in Soviet ballet since the 1930’s reached some kind of demi-nadir with Spring Waters.

First seen in America during the Bolshoi Ballet’s tour in 1959, it greatly appealed to our native athleticism.

Its success lies in its ability to convince the audience that they are home watching the Olympics on television. We dedicate this ballet to Olga Lepeshinskaya, an unforgettable exponent of this style.
