PER AQUUM to bring ballet to the Maldives

Xander Parish, the first soloist, and dancers from Russia’s renowned Mariinsky Ballet Company are set to perform at the PER AQUUM resorts in the Maldives this August.

The ensemble of ballet dancers, including Parish, will hold their one-of-a-kind performances using the tropical beach as backdrop as part of PULSE, PER AQUUM’s stream of avant-garde experiences.

The group will bring the over-water stages to life with performances of Swan Lake, Scheherazade, Giselle, Carmen and Don Quixote giving a chance for guests to see them exclusively at PER AQUUM Niyama on the 21 August, and at Huvafen Fushi on the 23 August.

Parish and the dancers are also set to hold masterclasses during their stay at the resorts, allowing budding ballerina’s to take centre stage to showcase their talents.

Xander Parish, originally from Yorkshire in the UK, was the first British dancer to be accepted into the Mariinsky company and will be joined by his hand-picked ensemble including Oksana Bondareva and Renata Shakirova.
