The Russian State Ballet and Opera House will be performing Swan Lake at the Wycombe Swan on October 28.
The ballet is based on a compelling legend about a young princess who is turned into a swan by an evil curse.
Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman, he is instantly captivated – but will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under?
From the opulent splendour of the palace ballroom to the mystical moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, Swan Lake has it all and is the perhaps the most perfect romantic ballet of all time.
It is a tragic love story filled with emotion and hope accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s stunning score.
Swan Lake captures, like no other, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.
The cast are renowned for their talent as well as the live orchestra of more than 30 musicians.
The company has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality.
Producer Alexej Ignatow, of Amande Concerts Ltd, who has co-ordinated the UK tour, said: “We are constantly on the lookout for new challenges, to ensure that our opera and ballet audiences get a chance to experience a wide spectrum of classic pieces.
“With extensive national tours that get our productions seen the length and breadth of the country, we are able to offer national audiences in various theatres an unforgettable experience at a fraction of the price of the major opera houses, all without sacrificing quality.
“So, continuing to work with theatres all over the UK it is very close to my heart. We aim to deliver top quality productions every year and make new converts wherever we go”.
