The majesty of traditional Russian ballet, St Petersburg Ballet Theatre, returns to The Teatro for one week only.
Following sold out seasons in London, Paris and Sydney, St Petersburg Ballet Theatre brings its grand, full-length production of the immortal Swan Lake to South Africa’s most prestigious theatres. The unmissable and stirring ballet will be accompanied by the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra.
In its 25th anniversary year, St Petersburg Ballet Theatre continues to champion the classical masterpieces with its graceful Vaganova trained company of dancers and breath-taking scenery and costumes.
First performed in St Petersburg in 1895, the immortal and enchanting Swan Lake, with its unrivalled “white acts”, its spectacular and dramatic ballroom scene, sublime music and deeply moving story – is the ballet that towers above all others. The brilliant bravura dancing of the St Petersburg Ballet Theatre is everything you expect from Russian classical ballet.
Be enchanted by the classic love story of Prince Siegfried and the Swan Princess Odette torn apart by the villainous sorcerer Rothbart in a story where true love conquers all.
