Founded in 2012 on the initiative of the Head of State Nursultan Nazarbayev, the Astana Ballet Theatre gathered the best graduates of the A. Seleznyov Almaty Choreographic School on its stage. In order to form its own individual style and image that could be presented to the audience, the company has been working for a year to combine classical traditions with new trends in modern and folk choreography. It was a time of intense rehearsals, searching for their handwriting and creating new productions.
In July 2013 the first premiere took place and it immediately became clear that Astana Ballet Theatre was not just accepted by the audience, but was also loved by them.
Today the theatre has many admirers in Kazakhstan and abroad and grand plans for the future.
