SUKHISHVILI, one of the most acclaimed dance companies in the world, is comig to LISNER AUDITORIUM OCTOBER 20th, 7:30PM by popular demand.

The company has appeared at the Metropolitan Opera, Avery Fisher Hall, Madison Square Garden Albert Hall, the Rome Coliseum and La Scala where it received a record-setting number of curtain calls.

Sukhishvili was honored with a Gold Medal from Queen Elizabeth, and received “Best Show of the Year Award” for its limited Broadway run. The New York Times called them “Downright terrific”; the Washington Post exclaimed they are “First, Foremost, and Magnificent”. It was a headline attraction with New York City Ballet for the George Balanchine Centennial. Fifty extraordinary dancers and musicians perform unique elements from twenty-two regions of Georgia, all individual in character, choreography, and costume, accompanied by traditional music. The company astounds its audiences with its daring athleticism, unique choreography, elegant grace and superb authority of movement. They have received universal praise from leading critics around the globe.

“The Sukhishvili Georgian National Ballet exhibits a rare physicality through its astonishing moves… explosive energy…. like restless stallions… these astonishing moves become exhilarating…posses a fine aesthetic, from the live musicians on stage… the the poise of the dancers with their lifted, bearing… high jumps and whirling turns were exciting …. quieter moments were most compelling… you could believe they floated just above the stage… airy hovering quality… dancers divided and subdivided in perfect symmetry… math met mystery and you simply surrendered to its austere beauty.”
— Sarah Kaufman, Washington Post
