Virtuoso is an exciting and contrasting evening ranging from the romantic ballet era of Chopin Variations through to Gershwin-Motion Pictures. The Black Swan pas de deux from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is followed by the famous Corsair Pas de derux and Spring Waters pas de deux (very rarely seen outside Russia and made famous by the Bolshoi Ballet).

The grand finale is the wonderful Gershwin ballet based on the Hollywood musicals era of the thirties and forties.
