The Imperial Russian Ballet Company returns to New Zealand with Swan Lake...one of the most-loved classical ballets of them all.
This masterpiece ballet is presented in two Acts and follows the original storyline. 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 conquer evil and betrayal.
The Imperial Russian Ballet Company was formed in 1994, headed by the Bolshoi Theatre soloist Gediminas Taranda. It is comprised of 40 dancers from the major ballet schools of Russia.
