Under the artistic leadership of Nina Ananiashvili, renowned as one of the greatest ballerinas of all time, the company continues to flourish and expand its repertoire. They will share two of George Balanchine’s greatest masterpieces: Concerto Barocco and Symphony in C. The rousing finale will be a work created especially for the company by Yuri Possokhov (choreographer of The Joffrey Ballet’s Anna Karenina), Sagalobeli, danced to Georgian folk melodies.
