After a world tour that saw theaters in London, Seoul, Sydney, Hong Kong “SOLD OUT”, the now legendary “prima ballerina” Irina Kolesnikova returns to Paris, accompanied by the stars of the Saint Petersburg Ballet Theatre, to give a sensational and magical production of Swan Lake.
Irina Kolesnikova is incomparable in the role of Odette/Odile, which she has danced nearly a thousand times. It has become her artistic signature.
Her embodiment of the double role promises each spectator to share an emotional moment that will be remembered for a very long time.
This classical ballet, at its best, will be performed in its entirety and Tchaikovsky’s music will be played by the Orchestra of the Saint Petersburg Ballet Theatre.
The St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre, founded in 1994, has gained a worldwide reputation not only for its many stage productions, including Giselle, Don Quixote, La Bayadère, Romeo and Juliet, The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty, but also for the high professionalism of its dancers, all disciples of Vaganova.
The popularity of the Company is such that it gives more than 200 performances each year.
