The incomparable music of P.I. Tchaikovsky unites with the emotional dance to a separate language that everyone understands immediately. The interplay between love and longing, loneliness and jealousy, anger, pain and happiness has fascinated theatergoers for generations time and time again. Especially during the Christmas season, the most popular ballet classic for many guests for pre-Christmas joy. The ballet, which premiered in 1877, has always determined the repertoire of all the powerful classical ballet ensembles.
Who does not know the dance of the four little swans or the breathtaking jumps and heartfelt pas de deux on the dreamy Swan Lake? It is the fairy tale of a prince who falls in love with Odette, who has been transformed into a white swan by the magician Rotbart. And this love is put to the test: Lyrical and tragic, festive and intimate in the atmospheric ambience of the "white pictures" on the lake in contrast to the magnificent and colorful costumes at the royal court, promise a varied festive evening of the great classical ballet. The Russian Ballet Festival Moscow can be seen from November with over 80 performances throughout Germany. The award-winning ensemble of the Russian State Opera and Ballet Ufa from Rudolf Nureyev's hometown has performed several times in Brazil, the Netherlands, China, Mexico, Portugal, the USA, Thailand and France. At this year's performances in Berlin, the ensemble is supported by a 30-member live orchestra.
