Swan Lake is coming
New Zealand will be treated to possibly the most famous dance company in the world staging its most celebrated production.
The Imperial Russian Ballet Company will perform Swan Lake on October 10 at Founders Theatre in Hamilton.
The company performed Swan Lake throughout New Zealand in 2005 to sold-out theatres and critical acclaim.
The masterpiece ballet is presented in three acts and follows the original storyline with the happy ending which was decreed by Soviet rule in the 1930s during the reign of then Russian leader Joseph Stalin.
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 in the end conquer evil and betrayal.
The Imperial Russian Ballet Company was formed in 1994, headed by the Bolshoi Theatre soloist Gediminas Taranda and now comprises 40 dancers from the major ballet schools of Russia – Moscow and Perm.
