International acclaimed celebrity ballet, Sergei Polunin , will hold audiences in thrall to his explosive talent and seductive hauteur with his Singapore debut as Rasputin.
Hailed as a totemic production, with a sold-out performances across Europe and Russia, this production will offer both classic ballet and contemporary dance enthusiasts a rare opportunity to witness Polunin’s mastery live when it plays at Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands on 2 and 3 May, 2020.
Tickets are now available via Marina Bay Sands Ticketing and SISTIC.
Rasputin is the tale of the Russian mystic man, Grigori Rasputin, who befriended the family of Tsar Nicholas II, the last monarch of Russia, and whose mysterious influence over the royal family triggered the demise of the Romanov dynasty. The ballet performance is presented as a chamber piece, playing out on a black-and-white chessboard set designed by the multi-talented Hamburg Ballet principal dancer, Otto Bubenicek, along which allegorical figures move, largely representing the fate of the heroes.
This enthralling production of Rasputin is choreographed by former Hamburg Ballet dancer, and first Japanese soloist, Yuka Oishi, with music scored by Kirill Richter, Russian’s most prominent representative of the neoclassical music scene. With costumes designed by famous Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko and lightint designed by Konstantin Binkin, Rasputin is said to be a career-defining role of Polunin.
