In the first few decades of the 20th century, the upheavals in Russian politics were mirrored by a new sense of change in the nation’s cultural perspectives.

Russian and then Soviet art, writing, film, and especially ballet attracted the attention of the world, and the often predictable artworks of the Tsarist establishment gradually, and then explosively, gave way to innovation, excitement and adventure across the cultural spectrum. Join us to get a taste of the challenging new drama, music and dance presented to Russian, Soviet and indeed international audiences by some of the most famous musicians and performers of the early 20th century.
