Popularly considered the quintessential classical ballet, 'Swan Lake' is a story of love, betrayal and triumph of good over evil, full of romance and beauty that has captivated audiences for over a century. The choreography demands that dancers have great technical skill, and they also must possess strong dramatic talent to represent the characters.
The prestige and timeless notoriety of 'Swan Lake' are motivated by the inspiring music of Pyotr Tchaikovsky, but also by the imaginative and expressive choreography of Marius Petipa that connects the human body with the movements of a swan and reveals the genius behind his choreographic potential and artistic creativity.
To preserve the tradition of classical Russian ballet – this is the mission of Russian Classical Ballet, directed by Evgeniya Bespalova, a company formed by a cast of dancers who have graduated from the top dance schools.
