Premiere of Russian State Ballet in UK

11th September 2012

It’s now less then a month until our beautiful Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty tour kicks off in UK. I thought it would interesting to post some information about theatre that will be performing for thousands of people this Autumn.

The Russian State Ballet and Opera Theatre of Komi came to life in 1958, with the premiere of Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” staged by Professor Leningad and composed by Alexander Kireev. The theatre is located in the Russian town of Syktyvkar which is the capital of a republic Komi just to the north of Moscow. Syktyvkar is perceived as an international centre for events in the cultural field. The theatre has developed into an arena for professionals performing a variety of cultural genres such as ballet, symphony orchestra, soloists and chorus. Consequently, the theatre boasts a mix of exciting production and staging. The repertory theatre delivers more than fifty performances a year from all genres of musical theatre: opera, ballet, operetta, musicals and children’s fairy tale.

Our 1st blog post

10th August 2012

We have decided that now is the time to start writing a blog. We have a lot of new tours coming up and we would like you, readers, and fans to know a bit more about us and what we do. Facebook and Twitter is a great way to stay in touch but blog gives you that extra information that you may be looking for. I won’t go into detail about Amande Concerts as all the information is already on the website but instead I will provide details about our upcoming up tours and while we are touring you will know what goes on behind the scenes and much more.

It is now start of August and most people in England feel that they have been ‘robbed’ of summer. However, I have heard a rumour that September is going to be hot so let’s be optimistic and hope it will be. Before it does get hot, in the office this month we will be busy talking to national and regional newspapers about Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty.

A few months before the tour starts it’s always fascinating time. We try to do as much as you possible to inform people about the show in the lead up to the premiere. On average we have 40 venues, imagine talking to 10 or more newspapers in each venue! With a lot of organisation and good technology it is actually very rewarding when we see our show featured in the newspapers with a beautiful photo of the ballet.
