RESCHEDULED TO SATURDAY 2 MAY & SUNDAY 3 MAY 2020Witness ballet superstar Sergei Polunin in Singapore for the first time to perform his career-defining role of Grigori Rasputin in the sophisticated dance drama.

The bad boy of ballet’s performance of one of the most controversial figures in Russian history is not to be missed. "Polunin is Rasputin, a titanic, totemic performance, revealing many facets of this controversial figure. Rasputin is a role for which he was destined.” ★★★★ Bachtrack. A youthful prodigy, Polunin became the London Royal Ballet’s youngest-ever male principal dancer at the age of just 21. But only two years later, he shocked the ballet world with his sudden decision to quit the company.

Sergei Polunin 
Hailed as a totemic production, with sold-out performances across Europe and Russia, this production will offer both classic ballet and contemporary dance enthusiasts a rare opportunity to witness Polunin’s mastery live when it plays at Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands on May 2 and 3, 2020.

Sergei Polunin
He swiftly re-emerged in Russia, dancing with the Stanislavsky Music Theatre, and has gone on to develop a parallel career as an actor, appearing in films like Murder on the Orient Express.

He has also reached a new audience on YouTube through the viral video Take Me To Church.

Sergei Pollunin

Polunin stars in this dance drama exploring the ambivalence between power and weakness, good and evil. Rasputin explores the title character’s complex psychology and moral ambivalence, and his catastrophic effect on the Russian court on a set modelled on a chessboard.  

Rasputin is the tale of the Russian mystic man, Grigori Rasputin, who befriended the family of Tsar Nicholas II, the last monarch of Russia, and whose mysterious influence over the royal family triggered the demise of the Romanov dynasty. The ballet performance is presented as a chamber piece, playing out on a black-and-white chessboard set designed by the multi-talented Hamburg Ballet principal dancer, Otto Bubenicek, along which allegorical figures move, largely representing the fate of the heroes. 

This enthralling production of Rasputin is choreographed by former Hamburg Ballet dancer, and first Japanese soloist, Yuka Oishi, with music scored by Kirill Richter, Russia's most prominent representative of the neoclassical music scene. With costumes designed by famous Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko and lighting designed by Konstantin Binkin, Rasputin is said to be a career-defining role for Polunin.

Royal Seats and Boxes include an exclusive post-show meet and greet with Sergei Polunin.

Mr. Polunin’s story is a fascinating one, a continuing cycle of fall and redemption. Born in poverty in Ukraine, he won a scholarship to the Royal Ballet School in London at 13, joined the company at 16, and, at 19, became its youngest-ever principal dancer. Two years later, in 2012, he abruptly walked out, complaining about ballet’s punishing discipline and inadequate financial rewards. He wanted a normal life, but also fame, perhaps a movie career.
