Kuban is making preparations for the jubilees of two famous artists whose names stand behind the high fame and reputation of the Artistic Association Premiera. On January 2, Yuri Grigorovich, Artistic Director of the Krasnodar Ballet Theatre, will celebrate his 90th birthday. In honour of his glorious jubilee, the troupe will perform the ballet Romeo and Juliet staged by Maestro. On January 13, Artistic Association Premiera will celebrate the birthday of their founder – the late Leonard Gatov who would have been 80 on that day. The troupe will perform The Big Family Concert ‘Under Leonard’s Star’ – a sort of report for the ten years of life without their parent. Meantime, all residents of Kuban may leave their reminiscences in the book of memoirs I Remember Gatov, and write their birthday greetings in the album Best Wishes, Maestro! Yuri Grigorovich Is 90.
