Despite the many noteworthy titles in the ballet heritage, only one has made it into the broad public awareness as the synonym for classical dance: It is Swan Lake by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. This colourful and moving story about the love of the Prince and the subtle Odette, who was turned into a swan by the evil Redbeard, has achieved immortality thanks to the overwhelming invention of the composer, and also thanks to the surviving choreographed passages of M. Petipa and L. Ivanov.
Since the original version, each new generation of ballet soloists and ensembles has encountered this exciting challenge in order to present the ultimate brilliance in dance. Our production deliberately respects the original version of the work and its sublime fairy-tale spirit, while also wishing to meet the expectations of those who admire the finest ballet technique.
