Petrushka



There are no performances listed for Petrushka

Since the Ballets Russes' 1911 premiere, Petrushka has remained an anarchic force on stages around the world. In Fokine's ballet all the wild fun of the Butter Week Fair in St Petersburg floods the stage, and unruly Petrushka is soon creating havoc. Then, one wooden step too far, this harlequin meets a very mortal end – but there's spirit in the old doll yet.
