Let’s take it back to the basics: Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, classic Russian ballet masters. That’s what the Grigorovich Ballet Company is all about, with no apologies. The company was founded by someone still referred to as “maestro,” Yuri Grigorovich, the famed choreographer and director of the Bolshoi Ballet from the ’60s through the ’90s. He’ll bring his seriously, classically trained company — 90 in all, straight outta the prestigious schools of Saint Petersburg, Kiev, and Moscow — to the Fillmore Miami Beach for Grigorovich Ballet Presents Legends of Russian Ballet Wednesday at 8 p.m. The troupe will perform selections from Rimonda, Water Music, and Swan Lake. There’s no minimalism here — it’s all lavish costumes, elaborate sets, music by Chopin, and highly skilled performers. This is ballet as it was set out to be, with its Russian soul and heart wholly intact. The performance will run two hours, with a 25-minute intermission making time for champagne. How very civilized.
Wed., Feb. 8, 8 p.m.; Feb. 9-10, 8 p.m., 2012
