Ballet in four acts

Full of romanticism and beauty, SWAN LAKE is considered the most spectacular masterpiece of the classical dance repertoire. A plot of pure romantic poetry, where good triumphs over evil. SWAN LAKE has achieved timeless prestige, fueled by the inspired music of Pëtr Il’ič Čajkovskij and the creative and expressive choreography of Marius Petipa.
Čajkovskij composed this masterpiece in a transcendent way: the Suite Op.20 has perpetuated the composer’s ballet. The success of his compositions is due to his ability to express feelings through the musical language, creating intense and emotional melodies.
The choreography by Petipa and Ivanov, which relates the human body to the movements of a swan, reveals their brilliance and creative ability.

The performance of the ballet SWAN LAKE requires great skill and high technique from the dancers. The duality of character present in the purity of the White Swan and the intrigue of the Black Swan demands a high degree of drama and virtuosity in the interpretation of the First Dancer: especially in the Grand Pas de Deux, performed in the second and third acts of the ballet. Another culminating moment is the incredible Dance of the Little Swans.
A classical production with incredibly realistic scenic elements, dazzling costumes, sumptuously detailed accessories, and a range of enchanting melodies that make up this great masterpiece of classical ballet.
A cast of international artists from nine nationalities gives soul and body to this great and irresistible classical production. An exciting and unforgettable experience. A unique show that will last in the memory of the audience.
