70th Festival | Mariinsky Theatre: The Four Seasons

The legendary Mariinsky Theatre, one of the most exalted and well-known ballets in the world, have performed last night, 4 August, for the first time ever on the Dubrovnik Summer Festival – in the summer of its grand anniversary no less – awing the sizeable crowd of ballet-lovers from all over the region gathered in the Gradac park which had, for two days, been transformed into a ballet stage for the Four Seasons, a ballet choreographed by Ilya Zhivoi and based on the Max Richter recomposition of the eponymous Vivaldi piece.
