The Imperial Russian Ballet Company 2015 performance of Swan Lake marks their eighth visit to Australia.
This magnificent company has built a formidable reputation from their performances with both theatre goers and critics.
Swan Lake...the most loved classical ballet of them all.
This year's masterpiece is presented in two acts and follows the original storyline. Subtle revisions and variations have been introduced by Gediminas Taranda, Artistic Director of the Imperial Russian Ballet Company.
Swan Lake crosses the world of magic and mystical creatures with that of the real world. It is a story where the virtues of love and forgiveness in the end conquer evil and betrayal.
The Imperial Russian Ballet Company was formed in 1994, headed by the Bolshoi Theatre soloist Gediminas Taranda. The Imperial Russian Ballet Company comprises 40 dancers from the major ballet schools of Russia.

A little more of the story...
The Evil Genius has bewitched sweet girls and turned them into graceful swans. This terrible spell will only be removed when someone falls in love with Odette, The Queen of Swans. Prince Siegfried is so in love with Odette that he is willing to sacrifice his life for her.
Staggered by such amazing and profound feelings, the Evil Genius dies. Siegfried and Odette, surrounded by nymphs, sirens and naiads are carried away into the temple of ever-lasting happiness.
