Russian dancer and choreographer Igor Alexandrovich Moyseyev is considered the leading choreographer of folk dance in the 20th century. Warsaw audiences will have an opportunity to watch a live performance by his students at the Kongresowa Hall May 30.

Moyseyev, who died last year, choreographed 200 ballets. These were embedded in a socialist realist context, featuring scenes from daily life such as work at a collective farm and football matches, and even battle scenes involving partisans.

Apart from folk dance, Moyseyev created choreography for operas including Bizet's Carmen and Sergei Prokofiev's Love for Three Oranges.

Moyseyev received Russia's highest civil distinction, the Order of Service to the Fatherland, first class, on his 100th birthday in 2006.

May 30, Kongresowa Hall, 1 Defilad Sq., 7 p.m.
Admission: zl.180, zl.150, zl.80, zl.60
