The Russian National Ballet: Swan Lake
March 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This esteemed Russian company brings to the stage one of the most magical and well-known works from the classical ballet repertoire. This stunning fantasy ballet is inspired by the German legend of Odette, a beaSettingsutiful princess turned into a swan at the hand of an evil sorcerer. With majestic choreography, an unforgettable score and exquisite costumes and sets, it is easy to see why Swan Lake continues to earn the adoration of classical ballet enthusiasts and attract newcomers. The company was founded in 1994 by Elena Radchenko, legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, and is dedicated to preserving the grand ballet traditions while nurturing young dancers throughout Russia.
The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980’s. During this time many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union’s ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet, but to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept new developments in the dance from around the world.
Today, the Russian National Ballet Theatre is its own institution, with over 50 dancers of singular instruction and vast experience, many of whom have been with the company since its inception.
