Welcome dear friends to Russian Ballet Orlando's presentation of Carmen.
2020 was the year of so many promising goals for me, and I had so many wonderful plans for Russian Ballet. Unfortunately, no one expected or was prepared for COVID-19 and we were not able to predict what the future held.
Fortunately, Russian Ballet stood strong and continued to provide virtual online classes through the Interactive Academy of Performing Arts. We were also able to open our doors on May 4th, 2020, and continue with Academy classes, Summer Camps, and Summer Intensive.
Now, we are grateful to host the first production of our 20th Anniversary Season in collaboration with Opera Orlando.
Thank you for joining us this weekend, enjoy the performance and I look forward to greeting you after the show or at our VIP reception on the stage with the Carmen cast members.
