Swan Lake

After last year’s success, The Royal Moscow Ballet revisits Poland with its “Swan Lake”! Odette and Siegfried’s love story will unwind on the scene of eight cities: Warsaw, Toruń, Poznań, Wrocław, Zabrze, Krakow, Łódź and Gdynia. Russian ballet masters will perform in Poland on 14–21 October 2018. Prestige MJM promotes their Polish tour.

The Royal Moscow Ballet’s Polish November tour attracted high turnout, which formed the grounds for revisiting Poland and bringing the “Swan Lake” classic to as many as eight cities. The ballet masters will perform at very prestigious venues, e.g. the modern CKK Jordanki in Toruń, the ICE Krakow Congress Centre and the Łódź-based Wytwórnia Klub.

The Royal Moscow Ballet is one of Russia’s best classical ballets. It stems from the famous Bolshoi Theatre, which dates back to mid-18th century. The current team is managed by director and choreographer Anatoly Emelianov, who was appointed Knight of the Dyaghilev Order “for his contribution to Russian culture”. He recently toured Poland as Swan Lake’s jester. Emelianov displays extraordinary ballet artistry. By sharing his vast knowledge of ballet techniques, he helped his team become one of the world’s top ballet groups. Their resume lists such classics as: “The Nutcracker”, “Don Quixote”, “Cinderella”, “Sleeping Beauty”, “Giselle”, “Snow White” and “Romeo and Juliet”, as well as modern choreography.

Each and every performance of The Royal Moscow Ballet, which is frequently on an international tour, is welcomed with well-deserved applause.

The Moscow ballet’s Swan Lake is more than just exquisite choreography, it’s also Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s music and the famous, characteristic dance performed by four ballerina’s holding hands. Let’s not forget beautiful costumes, lavishly decorated with sequins and embroidery, and accessories tended to by the ballerinas themselves.

Anatoly Emelianov’s choreography training sets very high standards, that’s why only the best dancers from Russia’s top ballet schools make it to The Royal Moscow Ballet. The team is formed by i.a. graduates of such prestigious schools as the Aggripina Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in Sankt Petersburg or the Moscow State Academy of Choreography, commonly known as The Bolshoi Ballet Academy.

- The Royal Moscow Ballet are undoubtedly the true masters of ballet, as one could see for oneself at the Polish performances in late November. We are pleased that we can once again host the team. I encourage everyone to watch the show, which is both a highest-class cultural experience and a beautiful rendition of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s music, said Janusz Stefański of Prestije MJM, promotor of The Royal Moscow Ballet’s Polish tour.

In 2018, Poland will host the ballet team of a few dozen artists who mesmerized audiences in Gdynia, Poznań, Zabrze, Krakow and Warsaw with their Swan Lake performance in November. Apart from well-known locations, the show will visit new places.
