Russian State Ballet of Siberia to bring Swan Lake to Manchester in 2016

The Russian State Ballet of Siberia returns in 2016 for a nationwide tour (5th January – 12th March). While in manchester they will perform the greatest romantic ballet of all time - Swan Lake.


Formed in 1981, The Russian State Ballet of Siberia has become established as one of Russia’s leading ballet companies. Under the artistic directorship of Sergei Bobrov, leading dancers from across Russia have forged their skills and artistry performing an expanding repertoire of new works and exceptional productions of timeless classics. The soloists and corps de ballet are superb, delighting audiences with their breath-taking physical ability and dazzling costumes as each storyline unfolds to the live accompaniment of the Russian State Ballet Orchestra of Siberia. The company comprises over 40 dancers and 30 musicians.


Commenting on the tour, Sergei Bobrov said ‘It is always a pleasure to bring the unique traditions of Russian Ballet to British audiences. Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly skilled musicians is always exciting; for me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage.’


Swan Lake

The greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score. From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. From Odile, the temptress in black tulle as she seduces the Prince by spinning with captivating precision to the spellbound purity of the swan queen, Odette as she flutters with emotional intensity, the dual role of Odette/Odile is one of ballet’s most unmissable technical challenges.
