Bolshoi Ballet To Perform Swan Lake In November

Founded in 1776, the Bolshoi Ballet is one of the world's oldest, and most famous, classical ballet companies. The Bolshoi style has gained acclaimed for its sublime emotion, strength and spectacular high lifts. The company continues to perform classics and new productions by great Russian masters in major cities around the world.

The world-famous Bolshoi Ballet makes it's only appearance in Asia this year with Swan Lake,an enchanting dance masterpiece of love, deception, and drama.

Set against Tchaikovsky's lyrical scores performed live by the Singapore Lyric Opera Orchestra, this interpretation of Swan Lake by renowned choreographer Yuri Grigorovich depicts the tragic love story of Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried to exquisite perfection.

White swan by day, human by night, Odette awaits an oath of true love to break the curse. In a cruel twist of fate, the scheming sorcerer Van Rothbart deceives her prince into breaking his vow to Odette with his evil daughter, Odile.

Witness the breathtaking evocation of the dual persona of Odette-Odille, the delicate swan and cruel temptress, in one of the most challenging roles for a ballerina.

Prepare to be captivated by exquisitely designed sets and costumes and the unparalleled virtuosity of Russia’s great Bolshoi Ballet.

Swan Lake will be performed at the Esplanade Theatre from the 20th - 24th November. Tickets available from Sistic
