TRADITIONAL costumes, 40 world-class performers and 1,000 litres of vodka – it could only be the Russian Cossacks.
Experience entertainment like you have never before as the Russian State Dance Ensemble of Astrakhan brings the Russian Cossacks performance to the UK for the very first time.
The impressive cast will be visiting 41 theatres spanning the length and breadth of the country and will visit The Playhouse Theatre, Weston-super-Mare, for one night only with its unforgettable show.
With original choreographies, this company of artists from the ballet, orchestral and choir genres have previously performed in Russia, Greece, Germany and other countries.
Drawing on hundreds of years of tradition, this spectacular performance of music and dance encompasses the fire, excitement and unique energies of the Russian Cossacks.
Their fiery dances and songs are as true and honest as the souls of their country folk, exuding yearning, bravery, hope, love and passion.
The highlight of this spectacular show is the Great Cossack Dance for which special sabres have been made of titanium, ensuring sparks really do fly.
Three hundred costumes have also been crafted especially for the performance and particular attention has been paid to the detail of 'the Cossacks' wonderfully traditional and elaborate costumes, opulent dresses and robes, all intricately designed to detail with veils, hairstyles and accessories to match, complementing the performances' portrayal of a fine aged art form.
Once Russian State Dance Ensemble of Astrakhan established, they were very quick to build their repertoire of Russian and Cossack folk songs and the troupe has now grown to 70 incredible artists – dynamic dancers, soulful singers and mesmerising musicians.
Prepare yourself for a journey through Russian Folklore and witness the glowing vitality and immense warmth to live a Russian Cossack's life, if only for a night.
"Russian Cossacks" will be at the Playhouse, Weston-super-Mare, on Friday 12 April, at 7.30pm. Tickets priced £18.50, concessions £16.50, are available on 01934 645 544 or online at http://tinyurl.com/ckzqxvr
