Swan Lake


Classical ballet in three acts

The new SND building, Opera and Ballet hall
The extraordinary work of Piotr Tchaikovsky, Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov is undoubtedly the most famous title in the ballet repertoire. The romantic story of Prince Siegfried and the beautiful princess Odette, cursed to be a swan, is the cornerstone of the classical Russian ballet school. Swan Lake has been one of the most successful titles in world theatres for over one hundred and thirty years. Captivating music, powerful dramaturgical line with a romantic story of the struggle of love and evil present a lasting challenge for acclaimed choreographers. In terms of technical complexity, this piece is an aptitude test of every ballet ensemble.
The production also features pupils of The Eva Jaczová Dance Conservatory and the SND Opera Orchestra.
