North Carolina A&T State University Lyceum Series presents world renowned Russian National Ballet Theatre Tuesday, April 23, 7:30 p.m., at the Carolina Theatre Auditorium in downtown Greensboro. The dance company was founded in the late 1980s during the transitional period called “Perestroika” the restructuring of the Soviet political and economic system. This transitional period in Russian history mandated a political stance and public conversations about human rights. As part of this movement, many dancers and choreographers of excellence within the Soviet Union representing several dance companies gathered their talents, courage and combined voices to express a newly discovered creative freedom.
