Violin Concerto No 2

one-act ballet


Music by Sergei Prokofiev (Violin Concerto No 2 in G Minor)

Musical Director: Valery Gergiev
Choreography by Anton Pimonov
Conductor: Ivan Stolbov
Scenography by Anastasia Travkina and Sergei Zhdanov
Costume Designer: Arina Boganova
Lighting Designer: Konstantin Binkin


Anton Pimonov has turned to international language, to balletic neoclassicism. The main themes are movement and love of classical dance – the choreographer interprets this after the manner of Balanchine. This is partially reflected in the title, Violin Concerto No 2, an echo of Balanchine’s own Violin Concerto, but with a respectful secondary number.
