The world-famous dancer Sergey Polunin to present the Russian premiere of one-act ballets SACRÉ February 13, 2019, at Mariinsky II Theatre.

The night is divided into two parts and starts with a one-act ballet called Fraudulent Smile (Fake Smile) staged by English choreographer Ross Freddie-Ray to the music of Polish band Kroke.

The oeuvre explores the nature on temptation, and how humans fight against it. Human acts and actions, as well as their influence upon a personality, are shown by the dancing. 
Nine dancers on stage uncover the inner world of one single character, with his thoughts, soul, and sufferings. 


The second part is SACRÉ, a spectacle staged exclusively for Polunin by Japanese dancer and choreographer Yuka Oishi. SACRÉ, as its name implies, is an adaptation of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring (Le Sacre du Printemps in French), while the story is based upon the life of Vaslav Nijinsky, and is dedicated to the legendary Russian ballet star.
