Don’t miss Sergei Polunin tickets to see a ballet superstar on this iconic London stage

International ballet star Sergei Polunin, often nicknamed the ‘James Dean of Ballet’, will present a new mixed programme at the London Palladium alongside John Kobborg. The programme will be performed from May 28th – June 1st.

The programme for 28-30 May will include three one-act ballets: Fraudulent Smile, Paradox,  and Sacré.

 Fraudulent Smile is choreographed by Ross Freddie Ray and will star both Polunin and Kobborg, alongside further cast.

Paradox and Sacré are both choreographed by Yuka Oishi. Both pieces explore the life of famous dancer Vaslay Nijinsky in his 130th birthday year and are inspired by his demand for “feeling, not thinking Human”. Sacré is a solo piece which will be performed by Polunin.

On 31 May and 1 June, the programme will present the world premiere of Rasputin, alongside a final ballet which is yet to be announced. Rasputin is also choreographed by Yuka Oishi, with a score by Kirill Richter. The piece explores the life of the Russian mystic who befriended the family of Tsar Nicholas II. The title role will be played by Polunin.

Polunin began his career at the tender age of nineteen, becoming a principal dancer at the Royal Ballet. In addition to his ballet work, Polunin has created a video to Hozier’s ‘Take Me to Church’ and went on to collaborate with the artist for the video of his new single, ‘Movement’. Polunin has also starred in Murder on the Orient Express.

A world-renowned ballet dancer, Sergei Polunin’s show is certainly not one to be missed. The programme plays at the London Palladium from 28 May – 1st June.
