“The RBT production captivated us with Russian traditions while adding new choreography, hand painted sets, and beyond beautiful hand sewn costumes”
“Head Jester Mikhail Ovcharov seemed to fly through the air with his cabrioles and grand jetes–a definite audience favorite”
“A heightened sense of reality, folk tales and folk dances transmogrified into sinuous spectacle”
“Something for everyone”
“One of the most transcendent cultural experiences I have had in a long time”
“It was a treat to see probably some of the finest ballet artists in the world. This is probably as good as it gets”
Russian Ballet Theatre’s new production bestows the splendor of tradition with new magical trimmings! Original sets are hand painted following century old traditions of set making and over 150 magical costumes are hand sewn! Nadezha Kalinina’s (Mariinsky Theatre, Omsk Theatre, Teatro Lirico) choreography is brought to life in all of its whimsical grandeur. This is an absolute Must-See ballet!
Dream came true!Always wanted to see Swan Lake Ballet and finally my dream came true! Dancers were wonderful. Theater ornate and lovely. Sparkling wine at first intermission. Recommend this night out.
Russian Ballet Theatre – great job!My two companions and I were enthralled by this absolutely gorgeous performance. The dancers are fabulous, the sets are exquisite, and the music is beautiful. Don’t miss it.
Not to be missed. Superb and ATMOSPHERIC!Bravo to the dancers of Swan Lake ballet right here at the Hermitage Theatre in St. Petersburg. Words cannot describe the beauty and grace and agility of these dancers. When they compare “world class” they are comparing to Swan Lake ballet in Russia. Truly an EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE! A MUST-DO!
Fabulous Performance of a Classic!I loved seeing the Russian Ballet Theatre’s Swan Lake ballet this past Friday. Not only was it great to watch all the beautiful dancers in amazing costumes, but my fiancé proposed to me that day!We will always remember that evening full of love and beauty! Thank you!!
Magnificent performance! The dancers were very good and the music was also of good quality. The theater itself is very beautiful and comparatively small. The sets were beautifully done. The performance went from 7pm to 9.30pm with one interval. The Prima was superb!
