Royal Moscow Ballet (RMB) returns to Gaborone on March 7, 2018. The event has over the few years proven to be one of the hottest lifestyle events that brings together class and passion for dance. OP Advertising is once again bringing the event to the ballet lovers in partnership with Edouard Miasnikov Agencies. The Royal Moscow Ballet was founded by principal dancer and choreographer Anatoly Emelianov and creative director Anna Alexidze in 2002, and they have since done over 100 performances around the globe. In Botswana, students from Risa Ballet – one of the best ballet school in the country having been teaching ballet for about 40 years in Botswana – will once more perform. OP Advertising General Manager Francis Gleeson revealed Capital Bank Botswana as the main sponsor of the Royal Moscow Ballet 2018 this year.
Gleeson is confident that this year’s event will like others be a sold-out one. Performing acts include pieces in tribute to the Great Russian composer Piotr Tchaikovsky. The one act ballet will be dubbed ‘Serenade’ followed by ‘Black Pas de Deux’ from the ballet ‘Swan Lake’ by Fraceska da Rimini which will be choreographed by Anatoly Emelianov. Capital Bank CEO Jaco Viljoen said they are proud to be sponsors of the event it has the ability to bring together a variety of stakeholders from the business and social communities which then helps in giving the city of Gaborone the spotlight it deserves. “We recognise the significant appeal that this event holds for our customers and the public and as such it is an honour to be part of this great event,” he said.
