The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded with support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation. The basis for the creation of the theatre was necessity of promising young theatre with high creative potential, both the classical and contemporary. For aim and objective serves motto: "The talent and dedication to service to art".

With the instantly recognizable music of Tchaikovsky virtually a signature of classical ballet and the wonderfully dark story of good set against evil, Swan Lake is one of the most famous and loved of all works in the repertory. It is impossible to imagine the ballet world without it. The production by Evgeny Amosov for The Russian National Ballet Theatre is an especially appealing and popular one.

The glamour of the palace ballroom is evocative of the Russian Imperial world in which the ballet was created, while the haunting moonlit lakeside is perfect for the tragic conflict of the human and spirit worlds. The central role of Odette/Odile is one of the most testing for any ballerina especially in portraying both the vulnerability of Odette the white swan and the predatory duplicity of Odile the black swan.

Not surprisingly, the two great pas de deux of Acts II and III are anticipated highlights of every performance. Without question, this is one of the finest works of all ballet and one of the most loved and appreciated in the entire Russian National Ballet Theatre repertory.

Artistic director of the theatre is honored artist of Russia Evgeny Amosov. The coach of the company is Evgenya Rytova. The basic principle of the theatre is to preserve the creative heritage of the great masters of Russian ballet and to search for new forms in choreography.
