SWAN LAKE

Kyrgyz National Academic Opera and Ballet Theater, Bishkek
26-06-2022 18:00

Tchaikovsky's ballet Swan Lake is one of the most striking phenomena in musical culture, a global symbol of Russian ballet. This masterpiece, created by the great composer at the end of the 19th century, continues its triumphal march around the world in the 21st century, as before, captivating everyone with its lyrical beauty and the triumph of the ideas of goodness and humanism.

The plot is based on an old German legend about the beautiful princess Odette, turned into a swan by the curse of the evil sorcerer Rothbart.

The premiere of "Swan Lake" took place at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1877, and eighteen years later the choreographers Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa created a new version of the production, which became a classic. It was then that the world-famous "dance of the little swans," the fluttering white tutus of the second "white act," and the devilish 32 fouettés of the Black Swan first appeared. This phenomenal number of fouettés - quick strokes and turns on one foot - was first performed by Pierina Legnani at the Mariinsky Theater, and they have since become a must-have skill for any aspiring principal role dancer. 
     
At various times the role of Odette, Queen of the Swans, has been performed by ballet legends Galina Ulanova, Marina Semyonova, Maya Plisetskaya, Raisa Struchkova and Natalia Bessmertnova.
