Silversea Cruises will welcome Daria Khokhlova and Artemy Belyakov, ballet solo performers of the State Academic Bolshoi Theater of Russia, for an exclusive engagement aboard Silver Spirit's Aug. 19 Mediterranean cruise.

The dance stars will appear on stage in the Show Lounge for three performances during the nine-day voyage, round-trip Istanbul, to destinations in Greece and Turkey.

'We're honored to have two accomplished artists from one of the world's most renowned ballet companies performing aboard our beautiful Silver Spirit,' said Kristian Anderson, Silversea's svp and general manager for the Americas.
