Moscow Festival Ballet presents Swan Lake
A Stunning Production with a Company of 50! Wednesday, February 26 at 7pm, Tickets: $55/$45 The Moscow Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 when legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, Sergei Radchenko sought to realize his vision of a company which would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies in an independent new company within the framework of Russian classic ballet. Leading dancers from across Russia have forged under Radchenko’s direction an exciting new company staging new productions of timeless classics, such as Swan Lake. Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is considered by many to be one of the greatest classical ballets of all time. The romantic fairy tale tells the story of Prince Siegfried, who falls in love with a princess named Odette. Odette is under a wicked spell that transforms her into a swan. The spell can be broken, but due to the evil sorcerer’s manipulation the prince and princess are subjected to only be together as lovers in the afterlife. Don’t miss this extraordinary performance by one of the best trained ballet companies in the world!
