Yacobson Ballet

Yacobson Ballet

Artistic director Andrian Fadeev

Yacobson Ballet was founded in 1969 by Ballet Master and famous choreographer Leonid Yacobson. It was the first Russian independent company - not associated with an Opera - it quickly created a buzz within the Russian ballet landscape and received the title of "Miniature Company", referring to the short lengths of the pieces created by its founder. During seven years as a director, Leonid Yacobson worked on the development of dance in Russia and collaborated with renowned dancers such as Natalia Makarova, Alla Osipenko, Maya Plisetskaya and Mikhail Baryshniko.
 
After Yacobson's death in 1976, his closest collaborator took the direction of the company and opened the repertoire to Russian and foreign choreographers, developing a repertoire of creations based on the founding technique of ballet. The company also began to export its excellent reputation outside of Russia.
 
Since 2011, the Yacobson Ballet has been directed by Andrian Fadeev, ex principal dancer of the Mariinsky Ballet. With his strength of conviction,
Fadeev wanted to bring the company - composed of 75 dancers with astonishing technique and soloists with strong personalities - to an international level. He rejuvenated ballets from the classical repertoire. And following tradition, he is commissioning and updating new stage productions and costume designs. Cutting the lengthy parts in order to keep what is essential; he gives spirit and rhythm to those historical pieces and modernizes them. The company is a beautiful way to rediscover traditional ballet repertoire, performed elegantly and with brio by excellent dancers.
