The St Petersburg Ballet – Swan Lake
Dance Show
For an unforgettable night drowning in an all time favourite ballet by the stars from St. Petersburg Ballet
The St Petersburg Ballet – Swan Lake

The St Petersburg Ballet Theatre is bringing Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake to Singapore this May 2018! This world-renowned production will star prima ballerina Irina Kolesnikova with guest stars from the internationally acclaimed Bolshoi Ballet.

This Singaporean leg comes fresh on the heels of St Petersburg Ballet Theatre’s sold out seasons in London and Paris. The Times London hailed the company as “A Triumph”, while the Sunday Telegraph called them “a company to be treasured”.

Swan Lake was originally performed by the Bolshoi Ballet in 1877. It tells the story of Princess Odette, who was turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer but returns to human form every night. She meets Prince Siegfried and they fall in love. The sorcerer. Von Rothbart, tricks Prince Siegfried into believing that his daughter, Odile, is Odette, prompting the prince to propose marriage to Odile. The prince soon realizes his mistake and tells Von Rothbart that he would rather die than marry Odile. Siegfried and Odette jump together into the lake and die. This breaks the spell and turns the other swan maidens back into humans. They drive Von Rothbart and Odile into the look and the two also drown. In the final scene, the swan maidens watch as the spirits of Prince Siegfried and Princess Odette ascend into the heavens where they are forever united in love.
