Anton Grishanin, conductor

Born in the Ukrainian city of Lutsk, Svetlana Zakharova began dancing at the age of six. A mere four years later, she was admitted to the Kiev Choreographic College. In 1995 she entered the international Young Dancers’ Competition in St Petersburg. The youngest contestant, she took second prize and was invited to continue her training in the graduation course at the St Petersburg Vaganova Academy. It was the first time in the school’s history that a student was allowed to skip two grades. The following year she joined the Mariinsky Ballet and a year later, in 1997, aged just 18, she was promoted to principal dancer. Since 2003 she has been a member of the Bolshoi Ballet. She is highly regarded for her technical expertise and talent and is considered one of the greatest ballerinas of her generation. She will appear with group of top dancers, all of them soloists from leading ballet companies, in a selection of some of the most beautiful pieces in the ballet repertoire. They will be joined by the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra conducted by Anton Grishanin.
