To augment the government support, The NINA ANANIASHVILI FOUNDATION was established in September 2005. Its aim is to popularize the art of ballet in Georgia, improve social conditions for State Ballet of Georgia’s artists and support development of professional skills for students of the Choreographic School in Tbilisi. (For example, my modest contribution was slated to provide ballet shoes for students in the School.)

FRIENDS OF GEORGIAN BALLET uses donations to support the revitalization of the company. Prominent citizens as well as members of the diplomatic community in Tbilisi have been the founders and early benefactors.

To make a donation to NINA ANANIASHVILI FOUNDATION, send an e-mail to Tako Rtveliashvili at tako_foundation@yahoo.com. She will be able to provide banking coordinates for wire transfers. For FRIENDS OF GEORGIAN BALLET, send an e-mail to friends@ballet.ge.

SBG'S NEW LA FILLE MAL GARDEE  - On June 1, 2013, one of the oldest and most beloved of ballets was seen anew in a staging by Nina and her most enduring partner, Alexei Fadeyechev. Using music from both the Ferdinand Hérold and Peter Ludwig Hertel scores, this version hews closer to the original French source. The setting specifies a village in France and though the principals are called by their familiar names of Lise and Colas, the Widow Simone is here called Marcellina, the umbrella-besotted Alain is called Nikez, and his father is a money-lender named Michaud.
