Extra performance || Swan Lake with Irina Kolesnikova

By on May 26, 2019

The famous international ballerina Irina Kolesnikova and the other stars in the St. Petersburg Ballet Theater in front of a captivating set of Swan Lake.

The Swan Lake, which was premiered in St. Petersburg in 1895, is staged for Pjotr Tchaikovsky’s immortal music and is one of the world’s most popular ballet sets. With the unbeatable “white acts”, the spectacular and dramatic ball scene, the exquisite music and the deeply touching story, this is a ballet that overshadows everyone else.

In the Swan Lake, the story of the young prince Siegfried who is deeply in love with Swan Princess Odette – a young woman transformed into a white swan by the evil sorcerer Rothbart, is told. This is a story of how true love overcomes everything.

St Petersburg Ballet Theater, founded in 1994, is not only known for its talented Vaganova-trained dancers, but also for its strikingly unabridged sets. With the ballerina Irina Kolesnikova in the lead, the company travels around the world and creates classic masterpieces from its repertoire, such as Giselle, Don Quixote, La Bayadère, Romeo and Julia, the Nutcracker and the Sleeping Beauty. There is such a great demand for this popular company that they provide over 200 sets per year.

After the sold-out seasons in London, Paris, Sydney and Singapore, the globally praised St Petersburg Ballet Theater is now making its debut in Stockholm with the ballet sensation Swan Lake, where they are accompanied by the St Petersburg Ballet Theater orchestra and give the audience a performance that they will never forget .

Do not miss it!
