Accompanied by a live orchestra.
Formed in 1981, the Russian State Ballet of Siberia has quickly established itself as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth. The soloists and corps de ballet are superb and never fail to delight audiences with their breath-taking physical ability and dazzling costumes.
Swan Lake, the greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score. From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. Odile, the temptress in black tulle, seduces the Prince by spinning with captivating precision to the spellbound purity of the swan queen while Odette flutters with emotional intensity. This dual role of Odette/Odile is one of ballet’s most technical challenges.
