INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed St Petersburg Ballet Theatre returns to Perth from 7 June to present a limited season of their full-length classic production of the world’s most loved ballet, Tchaikovsky’s Swan
Joining the cast for the Perth performances will be Alexander Volchkov, Diana Kosyreva and Klim Efimov, three exciting dancers from the Bolshoi.
This immortal and enchanting ballet with its unrivalled ‘white acts’, spectacular and dramatic ballroom scene and sublime music tells the deeply moving classic tale of the love between Prince Siegfried and the Swan Princess, Odette, divided by the villainous sorcerer, Rothbart, in a story where true love conquers all.
Founded in 1994, the St Petersburg Ballet Theatre is renowned globally not just for its beautiful Vaganova-trained dancers but also for its stunning, grand, full-length productions.
The company boasts 60 members and travels internationally complete with breathtaking scenery and magnificent costumes.
It is the only classical ballet company in the world that is completely independent of government financial aid or sponsor funding.
The incredibly popular company is in such demand that it gives 200 to 250 performances every year.
In fact, the company will perform in London’s Coliseum after the Australian tour.
Producer Andrew Guild has decades of experience in presenting quality Russian ballet in Australia and around the world.
“Without doubt, Swan Lake is the world’s most famous classical ballet. And no one dances it as beautifully as The St Petersburg Ballet Theatre. The full length lavish production shows Russian classical ballet on a grand scale. It’s the real thing. Gorgeous Tchaikovsky music, magnificent sets and costumes and superb Russian classical dancers. I urge every ballet lover not to miss it. See it once, remember it forever,” he said.
Performing at His Majesty’s Theatre Perth, from 7 June this is a ballet not to be missed.
