Russian National Ballet: Swan Lake
This esteemed Russian company brings to the stage one of the
most magical and well-known works from the classical ballet repertoire. This
stunning fantasy ballet is inspired by the German legend of Odette, a beautiful
princess turned into a swan at the hand of an evil sorcerer. With majestic
choreography, an unforgettable score and exquisite costumes and sets, it is
easy to see why Swan Lake continues to earn the adoration of classical ballet
enthusiasts and attract newcomers. The company was founded in 1994 by Elena
Radchenko, legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, and is dedicated to
preserving the grand ballet traditions while nurturing young dancers throughout
The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980’s. During this time many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union’s ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet, but to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept new developments in the dance from around the world.
