“An impressive performance … energized with dramatic expression.”

Experience one of the greatest classical ballets of all time: Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. With choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, Swan Lake has captivated audiences for more than a century. Featuring a company of 50 dancers, exquisite sets and resplendent costumes, this event is a must-see this season!

Moscow Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 when Sergei Radchenko, legendary Bolshoi Ballet principal dancer, realized his vision of creating a company that would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballets. Under Radchenko’s artistic direction, leading dancers from across Russia now perform new productions of timeless classics, commissioned works from within Russia and abroad, and 20-century, full-length ballets. The Moscow Festival Ballet has toured its critically acclaimed repertoire extensively throughout the United States, Europe, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong. Don’t miss this enchanting evening!
