The most loved and mesmerizing of classical ballets, "Swan Lake" was Tchaikovsky's first. It was composed in 1875 and over 100 years later it remains a favorite with ballet companies regularly performing it throughout the world.
This will be a full length Ballet in Two Acts with One Intermission. The full-scale production, set to the music of Pyotr Tchaikovsky and based on folklore and legend, follows a heroic young prince as he works to free the beautiful swan maiden from an evil spell.
The Legendary National Ballet Theatre of Odessa with 55 of the most talented and bright Ukrainian ballet stars along with the amazing Melbourne City Ballet Theatre performers and Satellite Symphony Orchestra musicians will bring this romantic tale of true love to glorious life!
Melbourne City Ballet Theatre's production of Swan Lake in collaboration with the National Ballet Theatre of Odessa and Satellite Symphonic Orchestra is an incredible opportunity for local dancers to experience a professional production that will be seen by thousands of people this holiday season.
Being selected as a cast member is an honor and a privilege. Those selected will have the opportunity to learn from our esteemed Artistic Directors, Artem Yachmennikov and Ekaterina Vaganova-Yachmennikova, to share the stage with professional ballet artists from National Ballet Theatre of Odessa, to perform to live orchestra music, and wear exquisite costumes.
The Swan Lake performances will be held on Friday, December 27th and Saturday, December 28th, 2019 at the Maxwell King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne, Florida.
