Fifteen years after its tremendous success in Geneva, the renowned Russian folklore ensemble BEREZKA came back to Switzerland in December 2012, courtesy of the Neva Foundation.
The shows took place on the 4th, 5th and 6th of December in The Leman Theatre.
Founded in 1948 by the outstanding Russian dancer and choreographer Nadejda Nadejdina, BEREZKA has survived the political contradictions of the former USSR and has preserved the highest artistic standards of performance, transmitting the richness of the Russian culture through movement and grace.
BEREZKA, which is now considered as a true legend, has performed in over 65 countries on 5 continents and has won millions of spectators by its thrilling and enchanting performances. For the last 30 years the ensemble has been directed by Mira Koltsova, one of the most prominent artists in the world of dance. The diverse repertoire of BEREZKA embraces great classical choreography, as well as a large variety of traditional folk dances: female circle dances, comic dances, quadrilles etc. BEREZKA is not only traditional circles of slender Russian beauties in sarafan dresses who are truly floating on the stage, but also comic male performances, sparkling duets and an original Russian folk orchestra.
BEREZKA shows give you a chance to immerse yourself in the Russian culture of the past and the present. It is not by chance that BEREZKA is often called the personification of the Russian soul...
