It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Victor Smirnov-Golovanov, the founder of Moscow City Ballet. Victor passed away on 22 April 2013 after a long struggle with cancer. He is survived by his devoted wife Ludmila.
Ludmila Neroubashchenko, who has been leading the ballet company for the last few years, will now officially take on the position of Artistic Director and will continue to preserve Victor's unique choreography and productions as well as the commitment to promoting ballet in the Russian Classical tradition all over the world.
We are looking forward to a successful 25th Anniversary Season of 2013-2014.
