ABOUT THE "PETER THE GREAT" GALA EVENING
Vladimir Malakhov, Nikolai Tsiskaridze, Alexei Ratmansky and the last five Artistic Directors of the world-renowned Bolshoi Ballet. What do these instantly recognizable names have in common? They have all been trained by one of the greatest ballet teachers in history: Peter Pestov.

The audience will be treated to never-before-seen archival footage and will witness an emotional coming together of several generations of dancers, choreographers and teachers celebrating the 80th birthday of the great architect behind their success. The evening will be hosted by Alexei Ratmansky.
