BOLSHOI BALLET AND ORCHESTRA: SWAN LAKE

The Los Angeles Times

Closed 19 Jul 2014

Experience the unrivalled Bolshoi ballet

Experience the incredible Bolshoi ballet in all its brilliance - ballet, opera, chorus and orchestra - for the very first time in New York City as part of the Lincoln Center Festival! This performance of Swan Lake forms part of a special presentation by the company, whereby they are performing three ballets and one opera - incorporating each of the company's artistic areas.

The production features choreography by world acclaimed Russian choreographer, Yuri Grigorovich, to Pyotr Tchaikovsky's beautiful score. Yuri Grigorovich was the artistic director at the Bolshoi Ballet for over thirty years, leaving in 1995 but returning again in 2008 as a ballet master.

Set in an old German castle and woodland, Swan Lake is a romantic tale of the love between Prince Siegfried and the beautiful Swan Queen, Odette who, along with her maidens, has been transforms into a swan during the day time due to a spell cast upon her an evil sorcerer. Only true love can break the spell, though the sorcerer will go to any length to ensure this does not happen.

Did you know?

The Bolshoi ballet was the first ballet company to ever perform Swan Lake! It premiered this now-classic piece in 1877.
