The Astana Ballet Theater is one of the leading performance companies of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The primary aim of the theater is to develop the art of Kazakh ballet and create national works that include bold ideas and new forms. The theater has its own original artistic signature and unique repertoire. The Astana Ballet Theater tours actively, in Kazakhstan and abroad, where it has visited Moscow, St. Petersburg, Paris, Vienna, Budapest, and Seoul. The theater was also twice invited to perform at the international “Stars of the White Nights” festival in St. Petersburg.
The Astana Ballet repertoire includes classic international and national masterpieces, as well as original choreographic competitions by renowned choreographers: Alila Alisheva, Aigul Tati, Gulzhan Tutkibaeva, Mukaram Avakhri (Kazakhstan); Altynay Asylmuratova, Nikita Dmitrievsky, Nikolay Markelov, Nadezhda Kalinina (Russia); and Paul Gordon Emerson (USA). Collaborating with choreographers and teachers from different countries has enabled the dancers to acquire a rich vocabulary of modern choreography, and therefore the language of the company is therefore understandable to audiences throughout the world.
The Astana Ballet Theater is a leader in the world of Kazakh ballet, and constantly strives to grow creatively, experimenting, and seeking new images, representations, and performance styles, and can always be counted on to bring joy to its audiences with new performances and shows.
