English soloists Kateryna Haniukova and Jeffrey Sirio return to Kiev with Swan Lake Ballet
What can the classical ballet Swan Lake offer to the viewer? Whole worlds and dramatic experiences if real artists are involved. On October 6, the iconic performance in Kiev will spark new colors, as Kateryna Khanyukova and Jeffrey Sirio will return to the stage of the National Opera.
Hanyukov and Sirio are leading soloists of the English National Ballet and triumphants on the Kiev stage. Last season, their tour of Giselle made a splash: the artists captivated the audience with filigree technique and a flare of feelings. The standing ovation continued indefinitely: the audience summoned the stars many times.
Now Hanyukov and Sirio will take on one of the most difficult performances of the classical repertoire. The whole 3 acts of super-complicated dancing and poignant acting is the reason why Swan Lake is the highest bar in the career of every artist and a favorite ballet of the public in the whole world.
Kiev has already observed Khanyukov as the fragile Giselle and in the role of the seductive Zobeida from the Scheherazade ballet. However, in Swan Lake, the actress will show the full range of her talents, alternately turning into Princess Odette and witch Odile. Her partner Jeffrey Sirio has made dancing at Swan Lake in Kiev not easy. The actor, according to him, interesting rich roles, and Prince Siegfried during the performance goes from a light-hearted dreamer to a decisive fighter for happiness.
On stage, the Hanyukov-Sirio couple are extremely harmonious in their skill and temperament. Also remember the date: the performance of English soloists on October 6 promises to give Kiev viewers an evening full of quality impressions.
