Downtown Asheville has been just full of world-class dance this week. After an appearance from Momix, the modern dance troupe that has been visiting much larger cities, we receive a performance from the St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre.
The Russian ballet company will present Romeo and Juliet at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. The performance sets the classic tale by William Shakespeare to a classic dance art form, from a country known for producing some of the greatest ballet dancers.
Tickets cost $25 to $60 and are available at the Asheville Civic Center or from Ticketmaster.
The production comes thanks to the Asheville Bravo! Concerts series, which brings international acts to our nice little mountain town. This will be the last performance of the season.
