Extraordinary. A phenomenal night out"
The Sunday Time (UK)
First performed in St Petersburg in 1895, Swan Lake, with its unrivalled “white acts”, its spectacular and dramatic ballroom scene, sublime music and deeply moving story, is the ballet that towers above all others.
“A triumph!”
The Times of London
 
 
The story of Swan Lake tells of young Prince Siegfried who falls in love with the Swan Queen Odette, a young woman transformed into a White Swan by an evil sorcerer. Odette’s story of how she is destined to remain a swan, only taking human form at night, fascinates Siegfried. He learns of how the evil sorcerer’s spell over Odette can only be broken by a man’s undying love. He is enthralled by her beauty. The Prince pledges his undying love to her.
At the Coming of Age Ball when Siegfried has turned 21, he must choose a bride. Young maidens from foreign lands are formally presented to him, but his undying love is already pledged to Odette.
During the party, Siegfried is fooled by the evil sorcerer, Von Rothbart, into declaring his undying love to Odile, Von Rothbart’s daughter, who bears an uncanny resemblance of Odette. Realising his inadvertent betrayal of Odette, the Prince rushes back to the lake. Odette is aware of the evil sorcerer’s trickery and Siegfried battles him and destroys his power. Prince Siegfried and Odette are then re-united.
The St. Petersburg Ballet is renowned globally not just for beautiful dancers but also for stunning and grand full-length productions.
The St Petersburg Ballet has left a considerable mark on the history of world ballet”
Danse Magazine (Paris France)
Tour Producer, Andrew Guild said. “The St Petersburg Ballet is truly traditional Russian classical ballet at its very best. Not only do The St Petersburg Ballet  bring their troupe of Vaganova trained dancers , they also bring  their magnificent scenery; scenery that has audiences applauding even as the curtain rises, along with sumptuous costumes, dozens of dazzling white tutus and hundreds of pink pointe shoes.This is the real thing, grand-scale Russian Ballet. A complete classical full-length work. If you see only one ballet in your life, let it be this.”
