In 2016, world-renowned choreographers Vasily Medvedev and Stanislav Fečo established the Petipa Heritage Foundation in Europe to honor the creative and academic genius of Marius Petipa – the father of classical ballet. Their mission was to preserve, restore, and further develop his choreographic work. Under their artistic guidance, reconstructed versions of many of Petipa’s treasured works debuted with major companies worldwide, including
- Staatsballett Berlin,
- Bolshoi Ballet,
- Compañía Nacional de Danza,
- Ballet of the Slovak National Theater,
- Romanian National Opera,
- Lithuanian National Ballet Theater.
