A week of Russian culture will be held in the famous Alexandria library (northern Egypt) in early October
The event will focus on the work of prominent Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova, said Gennady Goryachkin, head of the Russian science and culture center in Alexandria. An exhibit dedicated to the ballerina, who toured Egypt in 1910, 1923 and 1928, will open in the library's memorial hall. Anna Pavlova performed scenes from the ballets "Pharaoh's Daughter" by Cesare Pugni and "Egyptian Nights" by Anton Arensky. The exhibit will feature 60 photographs, critical reviews and articles from the Egyptian press at that time. A film about Anna Pavlova will be shown as well. The ballerina enjoyed great success in Egypt in 1923 when she presented "A Mummy's Romance" and "The Russian Tale" by Nikolai Cherepnin. Russian artist Ivan Bilibin, who lived in Egypt from 1920 to 1925, designed the sets and costumes of these performances. Russia will present the library with thousands of books, photocopies, microfilms and video tapes of feature films on oriental and Arab studies in the Arabic, Russian, English and other languages. According to Mr. Goryachkin, the Association of Friends of the Alexandria Library presented the library with hundreds of books on the Greek and Roman period of Alexandria's history.
