The Armstrong Auditorium welcomes the Russian National

National Ballet Theatre is the crème de le crème of the world’s ballet
companies, having merged from two of history’s most renowned ballet troupes,
the Bolshoi Ballet and the Kirov.
On January 28th, the Russian National Ballet Theatre will
perform Cinderella, a full-length ballet in three acts originally performed by
the Bolshoi Ballet in 1945.
The next night’s presentation features Shakespeare’s
tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, and
Mikhail Fokine’s masterpiece, Chopiniana,
which debuted at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1932. Both plays
will be one-act renditions conveying all the emotion and
beauty of the original full-length versions.
The Russian National Ballet will utilize the same lavish
sets and authentic costumes from the original Bolshoi performances, promising
spectacular shows both evenings.
Buy your tickets early as these performances have sold out
quickly the past two seasons. Discounted season tickets are also available.
The grand lobby holds the remnants of Israel’s

Captors. The seals exhibit will return to Israel after its extended showing
