Artistic Heritage of Sir Anton Dolin

Anton Dolin Foundation launched to pre­serve the cre­at­ive her­it­age of one of Britain’s most in­flu­en­tial artists.

The Anton Dolin Foundation, a non-profit or­gan­iz­a­tion ded­ic­ated to pre­serving the cre­at­ive her­it­age of Britain’s famed bal­let dan­cer and cho­reo­graph­er Sir Anton Dolin, was foun­ded November 2017 in Berlin, Germany.

Created by Sir Anton Dolin’s protégé Jelko Yuresha, the Foundation will pro­mote Sir Anton’s his­tor­ic­al im­pact and sig­ni­fic­ance as Britain’s first Danseur Noble and co-founder of Festival Ballet which is now the world renowned English National Ballet. The Foundation will also pre­serve and pro­mote the unique cre­at­ive her­it­age and pro­duc­tions of Sir Anton Dolin’s work.

Dolin’s bal­lets Pas de Quatre and Variations for Four, as well as his pro­duc­tions of Giselle, Cinderella and La Peri will now be avail­able only through the Foundation and through their pre­ser­va­tion of the au­then­t­ic cho­reo­graph­ic and styl­ist­ic ver­sions

The Foundation will pub­lish ma­ter­i­als re­lat­ing to the life and work of Sir Anton Dolin on its web­site, on so­cial me­dia, in print. The Foundation will also pro­mote bal­let per­form­ances of his not­able works and con­duct Festivals show­cas­ing his out­stand­ing cul­tur­al im­pact, mak­ing it more ac­cess­ible to a wider audi­ence. To en­able the Foundation to real­ize its pro­jects, it will be in­vit­ing spon­sors, oth­er cul­tur­al in­sti­tu­tions, bal­let com­pan­ies, and the me­dia to sup­port its aims.

В день памяти Ольги Спесивцевой

Olga Spessivtzeva Sir Anton Dolin in Giselle

Выступление Ольги Спесивцевой в образе Жизели производило колоссальное впечатление на публику – в зале были слезы, но и от самой балерины этот образ потребовал полной самоотдачи. Стремясь прочувствовать состояние героини, которую несчастная любовь приводит к безумию и смерти, Ольга Спесивцева совершала визиты в психиатрические клиники, а на другой день после спектакля признавалась, что слишком вживается в этот образ – и это даже пугало артистку.
