The Teatro Pérez Galdós Canary Islands’ Foundation has programmed ten diverse performances from March to July
Amongst which are the Saint Petersburg Ballet Theatre with ‘La Bayadére’, ‘Swan Lake on Ice’, and the works from ‘The Miser’ and ‘Happy Days’
There are ten more performances foreseen in the Teatro Pérez Galdós for the last five months of the current 2010-2011 season. Classical music, theatre, ballet and comedy are some of the genres to be presented in the final stage of the current season.
Most of these performances were confirmed in the last few months after having carryied out diverse negotiations with producers and artistic agents who showed their interest in performing in the Gran Canarian coliseum.
The initial programme by the Teatro Pérez Galdós Canary Islands’ Foundation has thus been increased, consequently raising the takings by the hiring of the halls.

The ballet La Bayadére
The director and the prima ballerina of the Saint Petersburg Ballet Theatre, Konstantin Tachkin and Irina Kolésnikova were also at the press conference on Monday 21st February in the Teatro Pérez Galdós to present La Bayádere, to be performed on 18th, 19th and 20th March, as a climax to their European tour.
The two russian artists are delighted to be able to return once again to the Pérez Galdós after the success last November with the performances of Swan Lake. This time, Kolésnikova is with her “favourite ballet”, a ballet described as “emotional and expressive”.
Tachkin describes this as being “an incredibly beautiful ballet that tells a love story that takes place in India”. The director of the Ballet wishes to emphasize the chance that the Gran Canarian audience has to admire on stage “ at one of the best dancers world-wide, the only one who develops her own season in London and Paris”.
