Songs, dance, fun and vodka!
11:02 22 January 2013
Russian State Dance Ensemble of Stavropol presents RUSSIAN COSSACKS performed to a live orchestra on Thursday, March 7, at 7.30pm.
300 costumes, 40 world-class performers in UK venues for over 50 days and 1,000 litres of vodka can only mean one thing - fun. With original choreographies, this company of artists from ballet, orchestral and choir have previously performed all over the world. The Cossacks’ fiery dances and songs are as true and honest as the souls of their country folk. Particular attention has been paid to the detail of the Cossacks’ wonderfully traditional and elaborate costumes. The highlight of this spectacular show is the Great Cossack Dance for which special sabres have been made of titanium, ensuring sparks really do fly. Come and witness the glowing vitality and immense warmth to live a Russian Cossack’s life, if only for a night.
