Discover the fascinating beauty of the folk arts of a distant land. Since it was founded more than fifty years ago, Krasnoyarsk's performances in more than sixty countries around the globe have earned it a glowing reputation as one of the world's great folk dance companies. Performing to the music of an orchestra playing folk and traditional instruments, the dancers create a dizzying swirl of color and motion. After a recent performance, The New York Times said, "Krasnoyarsk knows how to put on a good show. The dancers, who seemed to number in the hundreds in full-company pieces, were charming wholehearted and skillful. The staging was sleek and the costumes colorful."
