Russian Grand Ballet presents Swan Lake in Washington
Only one opportunity to see the full-length classic production of the world's most famous ballet - Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, featuring Russia's brightest ballet stars!
There’s a good reason why Swan Lake is so often called the ‘ballet of all ballets’. The combination of pure romanticism, the story about love and deception and Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet music all continue to reach new generations of audiences.
Russian Grand Ballet was founded by and incorporated graduates from the Great Russian choreographic schools of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kiev. The principal dancers of the company came from the upper ranks of the great ballet companies and academies. Today, the Russian Grand Ballet Theatre is its own institution, with over 50 brilliant dancers.
Full-length ballet in Three Acts with Two intermissions
Music By Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov
Libretto: Vladimir Begichev, Vasily Getze
