Internationally acclaimed prima ballerina Irina Kolesnikova brings together St Petersburg Ballet Theatre’ s stars in a spell-binding production of Swan Lake.
First staged in St Petersburg, 1895, Swan Lake is set to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s immortal score and is one of the most popular ballet productions in the world. With its unrivalled “white acts”, its spectacular and dramatic ballroom scene, sublime music and deeply moving story, this is the ballet that towers above all others. Swan Lake tells the story of the young Prince Siegfried who falls deeply in love with the Swan Princess Odette, a young woman who was transformed into a white swan by the evil sorcerer Rothbart. This is the tale of true love conquering all.
Founded in 1994, St Petersburg Ballet Theatre is famous not just for its beautiful Vaganova trained dancers, but also for its stunning full-length productions. Led by prima ballerina Irina Kolesnikova, the company travels internationally performing classical masterpieces from its repertoire including Giselle, Don Quixote, La Bayadere, Romeo and Juliette, The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty. The incredibly popular Company is in such demand that it gives over 200 performances every year.
Following sold out seasons in London, Paris, Sydney and Singapore, the globally renowned St Petersburg Ballet Theatre make its debut in Kuala Lumpur with the ballet sensation Swan Lake, which promises audiences a performance that will leave a mark on them for life. Not to be missed!
