"Swan Lake"

The ballet Swan Lake by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is the world symbol of Russian classical ballet art. An old German legend about Siegfried's beloved young prince - the enchanted princess Odette turned into a swan, thanks to the composer's genius, has turned into an exciting lyric poem of true love, connecting the real world and the fantastic, fantastic world.

It so happened that the first production of Swan Lake, carried out in 1877 by the directorate of the Moscow imperial troupe, was not successful.

The true birth of Tchaikovsky’s first ballet took place eighteen years later, after the composer's death. The performance, which premiered on January 15, 1895 at the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, was staged by two outstanding choreographers - Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. Their version of the fairy tale story to the music of Tchaikovsky marked the boundary between the passing century of romantic divertissement and the era of ballet symphonization. “Swan Lake”, created by these two artists, became a unique phenomenon of Russian and world culture, having absorbed the heritage of ballet art of the 19th century and largely determined its development in the 20th century. This staging of the ballet became the basis for all subsequent interpretations of it.
