Performed by the world-renowned Russian National Dance company, Kostroma is a spectacular and beautiful evocation in dance of ancient Russian culture. This mesmerising event unites centuries of dramatic musical and dance tradition.
Direct from Russia, Kostroma premieres in Australia this October.
This dazzling masterpiece features 45 elite dancers, masterly techniques, 600 lavish costumes and over 15 scenes. Kostroma takes the audience on a bewitching journey from the Arctic north to the southern Steppes, the peaks of the Caucasus to the depths of Siberia.
Kostroma is named after the place of its birth and the cradle of the Romanov dynasty, an ancient Russian town situated on the banks of the great Volga river.
The internationally acclaimed Russian National Dance company was founded in the early 1990s by its director and producer Elena Tsarenko with Art Director and Chief Dance Master Yury Tsarenko.
The company lives and breathes the traditions of their land.
The premiere performances of Kostroma were presented in, Moscow, London Paris and Rotterdam. Kostroma has been appearing in the Cosmos Concert Hall, Moscow since 2005.
The French call it "a Russian dance miracle", the Netherlands know it as "the spirit of Russia". This theatrical production with its famous image of 'The Girl in Silver' has already won the hearts of audiences in over 25 countries.
Kostroma captures the imagination, the passion, the humour and the magic of Russian and Cossack dance.
