Nicolai Boyarchikov (Artistic Director)

Nikolai Boyarchikov graduated from Leningrad Choreographic School (at present the Vaganova Russian Ballet Academy) in 1954 and was admitted to Leningrad Maly Opera and Ballet Theatre (at present St. Petersburg Mussorgsky State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre).

In 1967 he graduated from the Ballet master Faculty of Leningrad Rimsky-Korsakov State Conservatory under the leadership of the professor Fedor Lopukhov, who founded the ballet company of former Maly Opera and Ballet Theatre and choreographed its first ballet performances.

From 1971 till 1977 N. Boyarchikov was Chief ballet master at Perm Tchaikovsky Opera and Ballet Theatre where he made the ballet productions such as "Romeo and Juliet", "Tsar Boris", "Three Cards" (based on Pushkin‘s "The Queen of Spades") by Prokofiev, "The Miraculous fMandarin" by Bartok.

In 1977 Nikolai Boyarchikov was appointed Chief ballet master of Leningrad Maly State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre (at present St.Petersburg Mussorgsky State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre). In 1990 he became Ballet‘s Artistic Director of the Mussorgsky Theatre. Keeping up Fedor Lopukhov‘s traditions, N. Boyarchikov is drawn to involved performances. Producing new ballets (moreover, he is almost ever an author of the scripts), the choreographer appeals to the masterpieces of Russian and world classical literature such as "Boris Godunov" by Pushkin, set to music by Prokofiev, "The Robbers" by Schiller, set to music by Minkov, "Macbeth" by Shakespeare, set to music by Kallosh, ancient Greek myth "Heracles", set to music by Martynov. Some Boyarchikov‘s choreographic works regard the Russian prose: the ballet "Placid Don" after Sholokhov‘s novel of the same name, set to music by Kalinichev, "The Marriage" after Gogol‘s novel of the same name, set to music by Zhurbin, and "Petersburg" after Andrei Bely‘s novel, set to music by Banevitch. N. Boyarchikov also made his version of "The Nutcracker" by Tchaikovsky and renewed "Swan Lake", "The Sleeping Beauty" by Tchaikovsky, "Le Corsaire" by Adam, "Don Quixote" by Minkus.

Nikolai Boyarchikov is People‘s Artist of Russia, State Prize winner of Russia, professor of St. Petersburg Conservatory. In 1996 he was awarded the Order of Friendship.
