About event

Berlin stars in Swan Lake: Yana Salenko and Marian Walter will give a second performance in Kiev.

Kiev does not want to let the stars of the Berlin scene Yana Salenko and Marian Walter go! Tickets for the November Giselle fly so fast that the artists decided to stay in Ukraine and on November 17 to please the audience with Swan Lake at the National Opera.

Swan Lake is a hit by the Salenko-Walter pair. In the play, the virtuoso ballerina is simultaneously revealed in her grace and brilliant insidiousness. And the partner supports her in this, discovering the noble qualities of the artist and the hero of a fairy tale story.

In Swan Lake, the most sophisticated classical dance is combined with modern expression, showing the audience the depth and multidimensionality of ballet art. “Soul is full of flight,” Pushkin wrote of ballet, and Tchaikovsky’s famous music agrees with him, enriching the dance with dramatic development. Because Swan Lake is so popular all over the world - despite the fantastic plot, its heroes want to empathize. They dance not just technique, but a whole drama about love and finding yourself.

Yana Salenko, the owner of impeccable lines and softness, was created to embody a quivering swan on the stage. Therefore, it is so unexpected to see the prima ballerina at the same time in the witching image of Odile - bright, sharp and self-confident. So “Swan Lake” on November 17 will give the viewer pleasure not only from the massive swan scenes - recognized masterpieces of ballet. The main pair of the play - Salenko-Walter - is his separate masterpiece. Rare on Ukrainian stages, and therefore especially long-awaited.
