Exceptional ! With a corps de ballet of 35 dancers !
Who says ballet, says « Swan Lake ». The premiere of the famous trio Petipa, Ivanov and Tchaikovsky was interpreted by the Ballet Mariinsky in 1895 in St. Petersburg. Petipa – Grand Master of the Pointe technique-, was particularly focused on the pointe work of the ballerinas, with the absolute highlight being the Black Swan’s 32 fouetté turns. This spectacular technique, combined with the dual role of Odette/Odile, means that this ballet is a real ordeal by fire for any ballerina.
This wonderful romantic story tells the tale of the true love between Prince Siegfried and Princess Odette. However, the sorcerer Von Rothbart, casts a spell on the pure, innocent princess, who, as soon as night falls, turns into a swan. Only unconditional love can break the spell. Von Rothbart tries in vain to interfere between the lovers, as his daughter and Odette are like two peas in a pod…
Tchaikovsky’s wonderful music, the dancer’s virtuosity and the stunning sets turn this touching story into a real fairy tale for all ages.
The exceptional participation of such a large number of dancers – the dance group normally consists of some twenty- will undoubtedly add an important advantage for this great show !
