About Giselle

The Saint Petersburg Festival Ballet becomes the International Festival Ballet, due to the war of Russia against Ukraine

Vladimir Putin's murderous aggressive war against Ukraine which has been devastating it since February 24, does not only cause immeasurable suffering and destruction to the local civilian population. It also indirectly reveals more and more tragic links on the international cultural scene.

The famous Saint Petersburg Festival Ballet has also been affected by the Russian war. Thus, the name of the ballet is going to be changed into International Festival Ballet starting from May 2022.

After the war began, many Russian artists took a clear position against the war madness and for the respect of universal human rights. Before the beginning of each performance of the current tour on French stages, the Saint Petersburg Festival Ballet takes a stand by observing a minute of silence, making statements and playing the Ukrainian national anthem.

The ballet is now under massive pressure from its home country. The threatening situation leaves little doubt that a return of the Russian members of the troupe to their home country in May 2022 is currently not possible without danger to their lives and physical integrity.

Deeply personally affected by the war perpetrated by the Russian government in the name of Russia, the ballet is now going to change its name as a conscious sign of demarcation. The director of the Ballet Festival as well as of Ovation Events, Irena Veres, says about it: "The war situation, which is so terrible and deadly for the innocent Ukrainian population, affects us personally and despairs us, like the vast majority of people. Since the beginning of the Russian invasion, the ballet company and the whole team show even more their anti-military position, expressed long before, in words and deeds."
