Russian State Ballet Swan in to Stockport


The Russian State Ballet and Opera House will burst onto the stage again with a new and exciting performance of Swan Lake – a family orientated production, and will bring with them all the colour, enthusiasm and vibrancy that one would expect.

With instantly recognizable music and a timeless story of good against evil, Swan Lake is the greatest of Romantic ballets.

Accompanying these performances is a large live Orchestra of with over 30 musicians to maintain an exuberance of performance in this new production which will leave you astounded.

The Premieres of Swan Lake transform the classical ballet into a fairy-tale.
It was 137 years ago when for the first time the world listened to Swan Lake music by the great Russian composer, Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky. From this point the world of ballet would never be the same again.

There are no scores more successful in supporting the full range of ballet than those by Tchaikovsky.
The romance and verve with which Tchaikovsky infused classical dancing makes his scores unsurpassed to his day: in terms not only of music but also of theatre, they are masterpieces.

The Producer Alexej Ignatow explains what makes his company so unique:
“We stand out because we pay attention to detail and put a lot of effort into choosing the best artists.
I know that there are many companies that come together just to tour in UK, but we only focus on working with established theatres in the Russian Federation. With Russian ballet, you get passion!
This year, we have chosen to work with the world famous Russian State Ballet and Opera Theatre of Komi that has delighted audiences since 1958, and are renowned for their ballet and opera masterpieces.

The Russian State Ballet and Opera House was founded to represent quality and passion for Ballet and Opera at the highest level. We pride ourselves in bringing over from Russia a new theatre company and production every year, with much that is original to them. That way people get a new experience.
Of course, the music is the same but the sets, costumes, artists and staging will be completely different.
It will feel like a different show altogether, but still with the same high level of quality.”

Swan Lake has captured the imagination of many generations over the years and continues to attract audiences worldwide, and inspires both young and old.
