The Imperial Russian Ballet Company will perform Swan Lake during their visit to New Zealand, the most loved classical ballet of them all.
This masterpiece ballet is presented in three acts and follows the original storyline with the happy ending which was decreed by Soviet rule in the 1930s during the reign of then Russian leader Stalin. Subtle revisions and variations have been introduced by Gediminas Taranda, Artistic Director of the Imperial Russian Ballet Company.
Swan Lake crosses the world of magic and mystical creatures with that of the real world. It is a story where the virtues of love and forgiveness in the end conquer evil and betrayal.
The Imperial Russian Ballet Company was formed in 1994, headed by the Bolshoi Theatre soloist Gediminas Taranda. The Imperial Russian Ballet Company comprises 40 dancers from the major ballet schools of Russia.
“The Russians Know Best” - Jenny Stevenson, Dominion Post
“Perhaps it is true after all that only the Russians can do the classic Swan Lake.”
