The guest city

Saint Petersburg: from Russia with Talent

SEPTEMBER 2225 Montjuïc Castle and Ciutadella Park

Every year, Barcelona invites a dierent city from around the world to join in with the festivities in honour of its patron saint and, in doing so, to present its nest artists to Barcelona audiences. This year, we are vis- ited by Saint Petersburg, Russia’s second city, whose enormous artistic wealth features particularly many outstanding circus and dance per- formers.

MONTJUÏC CASTLE

Visitors to Montjuïc Castle will enjoy an excellent taste of the circus tal- ent to be found in Saint Petersburg. Absolutely not to be missed are the performances by Licedei, a theatre company founded by the great Slava Polunin that represents the very essence of that Russian city.

The circus programme at the castle venue also includes a superb selection of the nest artistes from Saint Petersburg, including the most outstand- ing acrobats and tightrope walkers.

CIUTADELLA PARK

By day, Victor Savrasov’s unusual Tubo Transformer and the traditional folk group Barynya. By night, dance by the Mariinsky Theatre of Saint Petersburg, presenting their version of Swan Lake alongside several Cat- alan performers. The Russian artist have taken over the park and Barce- lona audiences can only applaud this happy invasion.
