The Russian Grand Ballet is pleased to present one of the world’s most famous ballets – Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. This full-length classical production features the rarely seen Waltz of the Black Swans, and marks the first time the Russian Grand Ballet has ever performed in Green Bay.
Swan Lake features the story of Odette, a beautiful princess, who falls under the spell of an evil sorcerer. Only Prince Siegfried’s devotion can save her. Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake combines pure romanticism and tragedy, in a magical tale of love and deception. The glorious score and gravity-defying choreography have enchanted audiences for over a century, and continue to inspire new generations of dancers and music lovers of all ages.
Russian Grand Ballet’s full-length classical production features Russia’s brightest ballet stars. Founded by graduates of the great choreographic academies of Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Kiev, and steeped in the history of classical Russian ballet, Russian Grand Ballet has been bringing most beloved full-length classics to audiences around the world since 2005.
Under the leadership of Constantine Pinchuk and award-winning ballet master Andrey Litvinov, the company has expanded to include a corps de ballet of over fifty dancers, joined each year by renowned guest artists dancing principle roles. This year marks the company’s third North American tour with visits to 60 cities across the United States, and the presentation of two masterworks that define the art form – The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.
