"SWANLAKE" RUSSIAN CLASSICAL BALLET
ballet in two acts and four scenes
RUSSIAN CLASSICAL BALLET, the prestigious Moscow based company, directed by the famous dancer Evgeniya Bespalova, for the first time in Luxembourg to present a new production of the masterpiece of classical ballet - SWANLAKE, a narrative of love, betrayal and triumph of good over evil.
Full of romanticism and beauty, SWANLAKE is considered the most spectacular in the repertoire of classical dance. The choreography of SWANLAKE requires great skill and high technical capacity in the interpretation of the characters.
The duplicity of character present in the purity of the White Swan figure, and the intrigue of the Black Swan, demand a high degree of drama and virtuosity in the interpretation of the Principal Dancer, especially in the two Grand Pas de Deux, interpreted in the acts 2 and 3. Another climactic moment is the dazzling Dance of the Little Swans.
The prestige and timeless notoriety reached are motivated by the music inspired by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, but also by the inventive and expressive choreography of Marius Petipa who, relating the human body to the movements of a swan, reveals his genius, his potential choreography and artistic creativity. A theme of pure romantic poetry, where good triumphs over evil.
Pyotr Tchaikovsky composed this masterpiece in a transcendental way; Suite Op.20 perpetuated the work of this Russian composer. The success of Tchaikovsky's compositions results from his ability to express feelings through musical language, creating intense and emotional melodies.
Russian Classical Ballet brings a unique classic production with an incredible realistic scenography, created in the famous St. Petersburg atelier, where the scenarios for Bolshoi Theatre, Mariinsky Theatre, Paris Opera or La Scala Theatre are produced. Dazzling figurines, accessories manufactured with sumptuous details and with a set of charming melodies that make up this classical ballet production. A cast of irrepressible soloists and artists, led by two International Dance Stars.
A great production, classic and irresistible that represents an unforgettable and memorable moment. A unique show that will perpetuate in the audience memory. Not to be missed!
