"Alem" (or "Elem") in Kazakh - "The Universe". Ballet "Alem" is based on the ancient Turkic legend about the origin of life - the story of the birth of the soul.

To be reborn in the world the soul goes through a series of tests of fear, pain, uncertainty and ultimately wins the battle against evil. The performance combined classical ballet tradition and cultural heritage of Kazakhstan and current trends.

Brilliant music for the ballet "Alem" wrote a famous Russian composer multi-instrumentalist Bulat Gafarov. The sound of each piece is unique and original. In the compositions infused sound of shamanic drum, flute, Jew's harp and the Kazakh dombra with a string classical orchestra, piano, hang drum and light fashionable electronics. Each of the nearly 50 musical instruments recorded and mixed in the studio of Bulat Gafarov - young and already famous in Russia as the king of ethnic music composer. Also was used three songs of the famous French composer Armand Amar, who wrote the music for the film "Home". It became start of Russian-Kazakh-French international art cooperation.

Stage solutions implemented with the help of light-video installations-and 3D-mapping without cumbersome static decorations. Actors interact with video and holograms, smoke and light installations.

The ballet was created with the personal support of the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev. Now ballet Alem on the best ballet scenes in Astana (Kazakhstan), St. Petersburg (Russia), Moscow (Russia), Vienna (Austria), Paris (France), Seoul (Korea), New York (USA) and Tokyo (Japan).
