National Ballet of Georgia Sukhishvil arrives in Puerto Vallarta

One Night Only: Sunday, September 4, 2011. With more than 9,400 shows in 88 countries, the National Ballet of Georgia Sukhishvil is one of the best ballet companies in the world, and the good news is that it is coming to Mexico!

– This event has been officially cancelled. (Last update July 4th 2011).

The group of artists will offer a one-time show on Sunday, September 4, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. July 14, 2011 at 8:30 PM at the Teatro Vallarta (Vallarta Theater) in Downtown Puerto Vallarta.

History, symbolism, ancient rites, radiant embroideries, and dreamy veils will be seen throughout the dances of these famous masters of ballet.

Discipline, color, elegance, strength, agility, charisma, pride and, of course, great technique are only a few of the undeniable attributes which characterize this ballet, whose members, both men and women, all hail from Tiflis, capital city of the country of Georgia.  It is not surprising to see such determination in their semblance, whether it is because to be able to be a part of this much sought-after cast the contenders must submit to a series of rigorous training of six years or because they know that thanks to those artistic experiences they have the opportunity to pass on, with a lot of pride, the history, culture, and traditions of their country.

The majesty of this ballet lies in dancing and leaping on the dancer’s toes finding it unnecessary to wear Pointe (hard-toed) ballet shoes, relying on diverse stage and utility elements such as sabers and daggers as well as the use of amazing acrobatic moves by the ballerinos who have won the applause of audiences.

Folklore Ballet of Georgia, more than 50 years of tradition

Established in 1945 by Iliko Sukhishvili and Nino Ramishvili, the National Ballet of Georgia was the first professional dance company in Georgia.

Today, Tengiz Sukhishvili, his son, is the artistic director and manager of the ballet. For three generations the Sukhishvili family has been dedicated to the preservation of the National Ballet of Georgia, and for over 50 years it has gone around the world.

Throughout its long history, the National Ballet of Georgia has been exhibited in prestigious stages internationally such as Albert Hall, The Colliseum, The Metropolitan Opera, Madison Square Garden, and La Scala de Milano in 1967, a notorious performance because it was the first an only time that a folklore group was given the opportunity to perform on its stage..

This is not the first time that the National Ballet of Georgia performs in the country of Mexico. The Ballet performed in the city of Torreon in 2007 and in the cities of Guadalajara and Tuxtla Gutierrez in 2008.
