Nina Ananiashvili’s State Ballet of Georgia Returns to the U.S. This Month
This month, the 171-year-old State Ballet of Georgia returns to the U.S. for the first time in seven years. Under the direction of former American Ballet Theatre and Bolshoi Ballet principal (and longtime ballet icon) Nina Ananiashvili since 2004, the 62-dancer company, based in Tbilisi, Georgia, has made a name for itself with its expanded neoclassical repertoire and international touring. Visiting five cities across the U.S., SBoG presents Mostly B, a triple bill featuring either George Balanchine’s Serenade or Mozartiana alongside Concerto Barocco and Yuri Possokhov’s homage to Georgia, Sagalobeli.
