Event Details

The Imperial Russian Ballet Company returns to New Zealand with Swan Lake…one of the most-loved classical ballets of them all.

This masterpiece ballet is presented in two Acts and follows the original storyline. Subtle revisions and variations have been introduced by Gediminas Taranda, artistic director of the Imperial Russian Ballet Company.

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 conquer evil and betrayal.

The Imperial Russian Ballet Company was formed in 1994, headed by the Bolshoi Theatre soloist Gediminas Taranda. It is comprised of 40 dancers from the major ballet schools of Russia.

In a night that overflows with all things ballet, you can’t help be swept up by the sheer panache of the Imperial Russian Ballet Company dancers‘ – The West Australian

The Russians Know Best‘ – Jenny Stevenson, Dominion Post

Children under 5 are not permitted at this performance.
