CHOREOGRAPHIC MINIATURES, ballet theatre. Established in 1969 on the base of the Chamber Ballet, under artistic director L.V. Yakobson. Yakobson's productions, created specially for the troupe, made up the core of the first years' repertoire: Pas de Trois to music by G. Rossini, Pas de Deux to W.A. Mozart's music, Paolo and Frances and Minotaur and Nymph to A. Berg's music, Exercises of the 20th Century, to music by J.S. Bach in an adaptation of The Swiggle Singers, Travelling Circus to music by I.F. Stravinsky, Wedding Cortege, and a version of The Bedbug to music by D. D. Shostakovich. Starting in 1976, the troupe was headed by A A. Makarov, who was succeeded by Y.N. Petukhov in 2001. Some of the theatre's celebrated choreographers' ballets include K.A. Rassadin (The Execution of Stepan Razin to music by Shostakovich, 1977), G. D. Aleksidze (The Prodigal Son to music by S.S. Prokofiev, 1978), N.A. Volkova (Christmas Games to music by A. Soynikov, 1981), S.V. Vikulov (Romeo and Juliet to music by P.I. Tchaikovsky, 1982), and A.M. Polubentsev (Dances for the Queen to music by G.F. Handel, 1983). In the late 1980s, the troupe turned to the classical repertoire. At various times, A.E. Osipenko, D. I. Markovsky, V.V. Kim, T.A. Kvasova, V.V. Klimova, I.P. Kuzmin, V.A. Solovyeva, N.V. Bashkirtseva, N.A. Levitsky, A.A. Stepin, and others have danced across the Choreographic Miniatures Theatre stage.
