Swan Lake: Russian State Ballet and Opera House
"The Russian State Ballet and Opera House presents
Swan Lake – tragic and dramatic romance with exquisite dancing
Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky
Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians
"This was an absolute sumptuous ballet with gorgeous sets and costumes I have seen in years." - The Central Fife Times.
After a successful Ballet tour last year, Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for their annual UK tour with mesmerising, and captivating full touring ballet production.
One hundred and thirty-five years ago, audiences heard the Swan Lake music by the great Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for the very first time. From this moment on, the world of ballet would never be the same again.
Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so closely one can easily be mistaken for the other.
It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is turned into a swan by an evil curse. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman he is instantly captivated – will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under?
From the impressive splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.
Swan Lake captures, like no other, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.
A wonderful evening out from which you will cherish memories for a long time."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is renowned across Europe for their faithful, intimate and powerful performances. They have been featured regularly in local and national media, including an appearance on BBC Television's The One Show.
Alexej Ignatow, producer of The Russian State Ballet and Opera House explains what make his company so unique and stand out from the rest: 'The Russian State Ballet and Opera House was founded to represent quality and passion for Ballet and Opera at the highest level. Unlike many other companies that travel to Europe with ballet and opera productions, we only focus on working with established theatres in the Russian Federation. These theatres have many years of experience and, most importantly, they have an established spine of directors and leaders from Russia's most respected artistic institutions'.
The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is a gem of the Russian cultural tradition, bringing as they do the passion and vibrancy of the Russian character to their performances.
