An international team of young artists presents a colourful Ballet “Chipollino”, guided by the Russian choreographer Ms Galina Lyakhova on April 19 at the Siri Fort Auditorium in the capital of India.

Over 160 children from Russia, India, China, Japan, Denmark, U.S.A., France, Australia, Israel, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan appeared on stage for this uniquely brilliant performance, based on the music by the world-famous Russian composer Karen Khachaturyan.

The event, graced by the presence of H.E. Ambassador of Russia to India Mr A.M.Kadakin, was organized by the Russian Centre of Science and Culture (RCSC) in New Delhi.

The RCSC felicitated the best performers of the year: Sanjana Bambany, Shinjouli Adhikari, Shreya Goel, Oorgita Sur, Ranini De and Pradeep Singh. The make-up team was led by Magnaina, who gives a professional touch in the job.

The Choreographer Galina Lyakhova’s original ideas on the designs of costumes were promptly carried out by the team of the Zingrin Company, consisting of Ms. Chanreichan Horam and Mrs. Shinning Zimik. The music was handled by sound engineer Deepak. The computerised slide-show from the rear stage was fulfilled by Sabina Nijhavan.

The theme of the Ballet emerges from the popular Italian fairy tale “Chipollino”, penned by Gianni Rodari in the latter half of XX century.

They story revolves around the life of the Garden Kingdom and a victorious fight of a Little Onion—Chipollino—and his companions, fellow-vegetables, against the ill-treatment executed by the fruit royalty, led by Prince Lemon and Senior Tomato.

The performance by students of the School of Russian Classical Ballet is an annual feature. In the previous years, the Delhiites had the opportunity to witness such Ballets as “The Sleeping Beauty” and “Nut-Cracker” by Peter Tchaikovsky, and “The Mid-Summer Nights Dream” by Felix Mendelssohn.

Next year, Galina Lyakhova plans to stage a Ballet “The Fairy Doll” by Josef Bayer.
