The Cossacks fiery dances and songs are as true and honest as the souls of their country folk, exuding yearning, bravery, hope, love and passion. Prepare yourself for a journey through Russian Folklore with dance and music to transport you the fields of Russia.
Once Russian State Dance Ensemble of Astrakhan established, they were very quick to build their repertoire of Russian and Cossack folk songs. The troupe has now grown to 70 incredible artists – dynamic dancers, soulful singers and mesmerising musicians.
300 costumes have been crafted especially for the performance. Particular attention has been paid to the detail of ‘the Cossacks’ wonderfully traditional and elaborate costumes, opulent dresses and robes, all intricately designed to detail with veils, hairstyles and accessories to match, complementing the performances’ portrayal of a fine aged art form.
Come and witness the glowing vitality and immense warmth to live a Russian Cossack’s life, if only for a night.
