Swan Lake is the world's largest ballet, which for more than 100 years has retained its primacy in the hearts of viewers. It is this performance that many people associate with the art of ballet. Today "Swan Lake" is an ornament in the repertoire of almost all major world theaters.

A performance based on an old German legend, narrating about the beautiful princess Odette, enchanted in a swan by the curse of an evil genius, Rothbard, was created. This mystical story is told to the brilliant music of Pyotr Tchaikovsky and is built on the contrasts of the struggle between light and darkness, Odette and Odilya. Here, good triumphs over evil - love, which is impossible to kill.

Libretto: Vasily Geltzer
Music: Pyotr Tchaikovsky
Choreography: Anatoly Shekera
