Following their 2015 sell-out performances of Sleeping Beauty,  Moscow Ballet ‘La Classique’ make a triumphant return to Australasia presenting the spectacular performance of Swan Lake.

The most splendid ballet of all-time is brought to life by Petipa’s choreography and Tchaikovsky’s spectacular score.

From the moonlit lake where elegant swans silently glide to the magnificent opulence of the palace ballroom, Odile - the temptress in a cloud of black tulle, provides a ravishing counterpoint to the purity and innocence of Odette, the beautiful swan queen. A fairy tale story conveying all the drama of a tragic romance.

In this two-act performance of Swan Lake, the illustrious Moscow Ballet ‘La Classique’ - with their ballet skills, lavish costumes and magnificent stage sets -  capture the imagination, the passion and the romance of this classical ballet fairy tale.
