The National ballet of Georgia became the only dance ensemble that set a world record on the famous “La Scala” stage in Milan. The concert caused a furor: the curtain of the theater was drawn 14 times, so the record of Enrico Caruso was broken, where the curtain was drawn 11 times.
In the USA, the team’s performance was recognized as the best show on Broadway two times.
