Richmond, VA – Richmond Ballet II (RBII), the second company for Richmond Ballet, will kick start its second regional tour beginning in April of 2014. This season’s tour will see four return engagements, as well as a new tour stop in Richlands, Virginia, as the company plans to perform at the Festival of the Arts, hosted by Southwest Virginia Community College.


The company, comprised of 10 dancers who have gathered from across the globe, is set to bring a mixed repertory program to various cities across Virginia. The program will feature the work of contemporary ballet choreographers Val Caniparoli and George Lyssenko, excerpts from the classical and elegantly exotic Raymonda as well as work from Richmond Ballet’s own Ballet master, Malcolm Burn. Both the excerpts from Raymonda as well as Lyssenko’s choreography for Prayer were set by former Richmond Ballet dancer and current Richmond Ballet II director, Igor Antonov.
