The most loved classical ballet of them all…
Music by P. Tchaikovsky Choreography by M Ptipa & L. Ivanov (Revised by G. Taranda)
Swan Lake encapsulates the world of magic and mystical creatures with that of the real world to produce a story where betrayal and power are in the end conquered by the virtues of love and forgiveness.
The Evil Genius has bewitched sweet girls and turned them into graceful swans. This terrible spell will only be removed when someone falls in love with Odette, The Queen of Swans. Prince Siegfried is so in love with Odette that he is willing to sacrifice his life for her.
Staggered by such amazing and profound feelings, the Evil Genius dies. Siegfried and Odette, surrounded by nymphs, sirens and naiads are carried away into the temple of ever-lasting happiness.
The Imperial Russian Ballet Company will perform during their visit to Australia & New Zealand, Swan Lake… the most loved classical ballet of them all.
The masterpiece ballet is presented in two acts and follows the original storyline with the happy ending which was decreed by Soviet rule in the 1930’s during the reign of then Russian Leader Stalin. Subtle revisions and variations have been introduced by Gediminas Taranda, Artistic Director of the Imperial Russian Ballet Company.
Swan Lake crosses the world of magic and mystical creatures with that of the real world. It is a story where the virtues of love and forgiveness in the end conquer evil and betrayal.
