Russia is an immense and vast land which stretches from Asia all the way to Europe. Russian folkloric dance, just like folkloric dance forms from many other countries, is a mixture of traditional music and dances done in villages and cities, on the streets and in ceremonial situations, in parties and celebrations, combined with classical movement forms such as ballet, modern dance, and sometimes gymnastics or acrobatics. By mixing these genres, dances are created which use the stories, music, and costumes of different regions of Russia, yet which have integrated aesthetic styles which are popular on the international stage with varied audiences.
Arriving at the theater, a large troupe of talented singers, dancers, and musicians will enthrall you with their performance, which is exclusively for you and your fellow Oceania Cruises guests. By means of music, dance and songs you will become acquainted with the treasure of Russian folk art and its cultural traditions. Accompanied by the orchestra of Russian folk instruments, you will hear world-famous songs and dancers will present their mastery in the kaleidoscope of folk bright costumes.
Following the evening's performance, you will be transferred directly back to the pier and your awaiting ship.
