Their annual Ballet Tour in the UK is always a joy to behold and highly anticipated. Another Tchaikovsky favouritefeaturing some of ballet’s most memorable music, Swan Lake is an all-time Russian classic, overflowing with evocative orchestrations and breath-taking dance.Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians. The show will be directed and choreographed by former Bolshoi Theatre Ballet Dancer, Konstantin Uralsky.
The familiar story tells of a princess who is turned into a swan by an evil curse. The spectacular choreography allows the company’s dancers to demonstrate their brilliant skills to full effect.
Highlights of the ballet include the charming Dance of the Little Swans performed on the shores of a moonlit lake as well as sweeping ballroom waltzes set in the splendour of the RoyalPalace.
An enchanting feast for the eyes, and an ideal introduction to the magic and romance that is classical ballet.
