“Swan Lake” sweeps audiences up in the throes of new love, and devastating heartache. With a twist of fate that has enchanted viewers for over 150 years, this Russian ballet is not the fairy tale love story one might expect. The Moscow Festival Ballet presentation is 7:30 p.m. Jan. 30 at Popejoy Hall.
The Moscow Festival Ballet’s sensuous rendition of “Swan Lake” is a whirlwind affair executed with precision and grace. Prince Siegfried finds true love in Odette, the White Swan.
Their innocent romance is triggered by a dance imbued with tender elegance. However, Siegfried mistakenly engages Odile, the Black Swan, in a smoldering display that threatens his happy ending with Odette.
The Moscow Festival Ballet incorporates the classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies, evinced by its exquisite “Swan Lake.” With mesmerizing choreography and precision, the company creates a spellbinding world where audiences experience the highs and lows of classic Russian romance.
“Swan Lake” was Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s first composition for ballet, followed by other timeless classics such as “Sleeping Beauty” and “The Nutcracker.”
