Swan Lake is Russian Ballet Theatre’s new production of the Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s timeless classic. Choreographer, Nadezhda Kalinina, has lovingly retouched the oldest St. Petersburg version of the ballet adding her vision and something more, that undoubtedly will leave audiences flushed with emotion.

Russian Ballet Theatre’s dancers bring Kalinina’s choreography to life along with exquisite new hand-painted sets and 150 new hand-sewn costumes. Designed by the young, accomplished Sergei Novikov, these are in the century-old tradition of the great theatrical masters. Novikov is known for his work with Mariinsky Theatre, Teatro Lirico, and Omsk State Music Theatre.

Swan Lake also features SFX makeup by award-winning Irina Strukova, whose work has been featured on Crazy Rich Asians, Netflix, and HBO.
