Tchaikovsky's instantly recognisable music set against the wonderfully dark story of good against evil; Swan Lake is one of the most famous and loved of all ballets. This production by Evgeny Amosov, Artistic Director of The Russian National Ballet Theatre, is heralded around the world.
Swan Lake’s glamorous set is evocative of the Russian Imperial world in which the ballet was created, while the haunting moonlit lakeside is perfect for the tragic conflict of the human and spirit worlds and allows the audience to be swept away in the vulnerability of Odett/ Odile.
The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded with support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation. The basis for the creation of the theatre was a necessity for promising young theatre with high creative potential, both classical and contemporary.The theatre’s repertoire includes not only classical performances such as The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Scotland Suite,Don Quixote and Gala Concert, but also modern ballets set to the music of Mozart, Bach, Ravel and others.
