La Scala ballet has become the first foreign company to perform on the renovated stage of the Moscow Bolshoi Theatre. On Thursday, La Scala ballet dancers stunned the Moscow public with the theatre’s signature ballet Excelsior, composed in 1881, says The Voice of Russia.
The ballet, choreographed by Luigi Manzotti, shows the master’s understanding of technological progress.
Enchanted by the achievements of the 19th century, including the invention of electricity and the construction of the Suez Canal and the Moncenisio railway tunnel, Manzotti imparts his vision of “moving forward” through a ballet.
