The Russian National Ballet Presents Swan Lake

The Russian National Ballet Presents Swan Lake

The Russian National Ballet has established a reputation for talent and versatility by touring the world with both full-length traditional ballets and shorter ‘divertissements.’ Its artistic director, Constantine Pinchuk, is dedicated to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet.

“There’s a good reason why Swan Lake is so often called the ‘ballet of all ballets’ – the combination of pure romanticism, a story about love and deception and Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet music continue to reach new generations of audiences,” says Pinchuk. “It is an incredible opportunity for both the younger and older generations to experience the arts and enjoy a ballet classic.”

Swan Lake, based on Russian folklore and German legend, follows a heroic young prince as he works to free the beautiful swan maiden from an evil spell. The ballet is in three acts with two intermissions, with music by Tchaikovsky, choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, and libretto by Vladimir Begichev and Vasily Getzer. Running time is approximately two hours and 30 minutes.
