CHOREGRAPHY: YURI GRIGOROVICH
STARRING: Svetlana Zakharova, Denis Rodkin, Artemy Belyakov, Igor Tsvirko
By moonlight on the shore of a mysterious lake, Prince Siegfried meets the bewitched swan-woman Odette. Completely spellbound by her beauty, he swears his love to her. However, the Prince realises too late that Fate has another plan for him….
In the dual role of the white swan Odette and her rival black swan Odile, prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova exudes both vulnerability and cunning through superb technical mastery, alongside Denis Rodkin as a powerful and emotional Siegfried. Including breathtaking scenes with the Bolshoi’s corps de ballet, ‘Swan Lake’ is classical ballet at its finest.
