The last in my series of Russian ballet-related objects is this ballet matrioshka.
During August, my object lessons will all have some connection with Russian ballet. This week’s object is a poster for a production of La Bayadѐre by the Kirov (Mariinsky) Ballet Company in Ottawa in February 2011. The poster was given by the company to my daughter after she successfully auditioned for a role as one of the girls in the Dance of the Golden Idol.
You can watch a very similar production of the Dance of the Golden Idol by the Bolshoi ballet here:
