Swan Lake at Oporto

O Lago dos Cisnes no PortoSwan Lake at Oporto On November 28, Swan Lake will show up in Coliseu of Oporto, by the Classical Russian Ballet.

Led by Evgeniya Bespalova, this production will display with lavish sets, wonderful costumes and a dazzling array of melodies that make up this great masterpiece of classical ballet.

The Russian Classical Ballet Company is currently one of the most prestigious Russian ballet companies. It was founded in 1990 and features dancers from various famous companies, such as the Bolshoi Ballet, and from several other countries.

Swan Lake is a classic fixture in the history of dance. Since its debut, not very glorious, it was revisited many times throughout the world, in versions that took many different shapes and forms. It is a dramatic balett in four acts, by the Russian composer Tchaikovsky, with libretto by Vladimir Begitchev and Vasily Geltzer. It was commissioned to the composer by the Bolshoi Theatre in 1876 and its debut took place in Moscow on February 20, 1877. It was a failure, not because of the music, but because of the misinterpretation of the orchestra and the dancers, and the choreography and scenography. The music of Tchaikovsky continues, however, to be the great inspiration, converting Swan Lake Ballet in a symbol, which is worth seeing at least once in lifetime.

Ticket prices : from € 23.00 to € 33,00 €.
