The Soviet Dance in all its brilliance, with unsurpassed classical techniques and a matchless folk spirit is capsuled into one exciting evening by the Raduca Dancers. Appearing in the United States for the first time, tiie raduga dancers (pronounced Rahdu ga) take their name from the Russian word for rainbow. This is an all star company, presenting to many North American cities a first taste of the great dance traditions for which the U.S.S.R. is justly famed. And the program, specially designed for Columbia Artists Management by Gosconcert, the Soviet government concert agency, has been made to fully reveal the complete spectrum of Soviet Dance.
The Russian ballet, with a noble history' spanning two centuries, is represented by a group of classical dancers appearing in excerpts from the world's best loved dance reper?toire. Stars of the Bolshoi Ballet (including Shamil Yagudin and Yuri Zhdanov whose gravity defying leaps have mystified American critics), the first dancers from the famed Stanislavski Theatre, and leading members of the Ballets of Georgia, Latvia, Byelorussia and Uzbekistan make up the classical contingent of the Raduga Dancers.
Stately Georgians from the Georgian Folk Dance Ensemble (noted for their ability to dance en pointe without padded boots) ; members of the exuberant Moiseyev Company and members of Folk companies from places as varied as Tashkent and Gjiatsk, Vitebsk and Baku, appear colorfully costumed and magnificently schooled in a series of thrilling folk dance vignettes. The vibrant music of the Russian people has a special place in Raduga as played by a pair of Bayans (the Russian word for Accordian) and sung by Ludmilla Zikina, one of her country's most popular folk singers. And Eugene Avksentiev a great Balalaika virtuoso will bring a new dimension to this sweet voiced Russian ancestor of the guitar.
