Alexander Theatre was named after the emperor Alexander II of Russia and opened its doors on 30th of March 1880. The Theatre’s repertoire has always been wide and diverse ranging from Italian opera to Russian theatre classics and operettas to vaudeville. In 1919 Alexander Theatre became the headquarters of Finnish National Ballet and remained so until 1993 when the new opera house opened.
Nowadays, at Alexander Theatre you are able to experience a variety of performing arts. Namely, the theatre hosts different dance, theatre and music performances as well as galas and competitions yearly. What is more, Alexander Theatre rents its dance halls for both professional and amateur dancers while its other accommodations can be rented out for photography purposes and private events.
The Prima Ballerina Collection
My footwear collection, Prima Ballerina, is inspired by pointe shoes, Swan Lake and rococo dance shoes and crafted from real silk, mohair yarn and vegetable dyed velvet. Furthermore, each shoe model is named after a famous ballerina or a character from ballet in order to bring forward ballet’s female stars.
