“The RBT production captivated us with Russian traditions while adding new choreography, hand painted sets, and beyond beautiful hand sewn costumes”
“Head Jester Mikhail Ovcharov seemed to fly through the air with his cabrioles and grand jetes–a definite audience favorite”
“A heightened sense of reality, folk tales and folk dances transmogrified into sinuous spectacle”
“Something for everyone”
“One of the most transcendent cultural experiences I have had in a long time”
“It was a treat to see probably some of the finest ballet artists in the world. This is probably as good as it gets”
Those faithful to the tradition of Swan Lake, must see Russian Ballet Theatre’s new production of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s timeless classic.
Choreographer Nadezhda Kalinina (Mariinsky Theatre, Teatro Lirico, Omsk State Music Theatre) lovingly retouches the oldest St. Petersburg version of the ballet and adds her vision and something more that undoubtedly will leave audiences flushed with emotion.
Gifted dancers bring her choreography to life along with the new exquisite hand painted sets and 150 new hand sewn costumes. Designed by the young, accomplished Sergei Novikov (Mariinsky Theatre, Omsk State Music Theatre, St. Petersburg State Music Hall), the clothing ensembles and sets are in the tradition of the great masters.
SFX makeup by Award-winning Irina Strukova (Crazy Rich Asians, Netflix, HBO) completes the already perfect glittering fantasy that is Swan Lake!
