Swan Lake is com­ing

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINAMENT -

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.
