The Italian public will have a chance to enjoy the ballets, "Chopiniana," "Shaherezade" and "The Firebird," which were choreographed by Mikhail Fokin, a choreographer in the early 20th century. The ballet will also perform George Balanchine's "Jewels" and Pyotr Chaikovsky's "Swan Lake," one of the ballet's visiting pieces.
This season is not the first time the ballet has gone abroad. The Kirov Ballet successfully performed in the United States and Japan. In February 2004 the ballet performed in Israel and in April, it will perform in Finland.
