Swan Lake


Classical ballet in three acts

The new SND building, Opera and Ballet hall

The phenomenal oeuvre by Piotr Ilych Tchaikovsky, Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov is no doubt the most popular title in any ballet repertoire. The romantic story of the prince Siegfried and the beautiful princess Odette cursed into a swan reis the ground stone of classical Russian ballet school. For nearly hundred and thirty years it is among the most successful tiles in thratres worldwide. Captivating music, enthralling dramaturgy with romantic story of the struggle between love and evil have lost none of their appeal to lauded choreographers. In terms of technical challenge, the oeuvre sets the benchmark for every ballet theatre.
