Russian State Ballet present Swan Lake
The greatest romantic ballet of all time, Swan Lake, comes to life at Portsmouth Guildhall on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th January, with Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score.
From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. The dual role of Odette/Odile is one of ballet’s most unmissable technical challenges.
Critics have heralded this Russian State Ballet production a triumph. Formed in 1981, the Russian State Ballet of Siberia have quickly established themselves as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies and have built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and unusual depth.
The soloists and corps de ballet are superb, and never fail to delight audiences with their breathtaking physical ability and dazzling costumes.
Artistic director Sergei Bobrov said: “It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian Ballet to British audiences.
“Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly skilled musicians is always exciting, for me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage.”
See Swan Lake at Portsmouth Guildhall on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th January, from 7:00pm on both days. Tickets start from £15.00.
