The Russian National Ballet was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, when many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union's ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new,
vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet but to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept new developments in the dance from
around the world.
The company, then titled the Soviet National Ballet, was founded by and incorporated graduates
from the great Russian choreographic schools of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Perm. The
principal dancers of the company came from the upper ranks of the great ballet companies and
academies of Russia, and the companies of Riga, Kiev and even Warsaw. Today, the Russian
National Ballet is its own institution, with over 50 dancers of singular instruction and vast
experience, many of whom have been with the company since its inception. In addition to their
extensive tour history, beginning in January 2017 the company will embark upon a 4-month
coast-to-coast tour of the United States.
In 1994, the legendary Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko was selected by Presidential
decree to assume the first permanent artistic directorship of the company. Ms. Radchenko is the
founder of the Russian National Ballet, and she has focused the Company on upholding the
grand national tradition of the major Russian ballet works and developing new talents throughout
Russia, with a repertory of virtually all of the great full works of Petipa: Don Quixote, La
Bayadere, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Raymonda, Paquita, Coppelia and La Sylphide, as
well as productions of, among others, The Nutcracker, Sylvia, and La Fille Mal Gardee.
