Swan Lake in Manchester


Renowned dance company, Moscow City Ballet, return to the Opera House in Manchester on Tuesday 15 until Thursday 17 Jan 2013.


Swan Lake follows the fate of Prince Siegfried as he falls in love with the beautiful Swan Queen, Odette.  This magical ballet is performed in all its original splendour and features lavish sets, dazzling costumes and stunning choreography.  Featuring some of the world’s finest dancers the ballet is performed beautifully to Tchaikovsky’s score played live by Moscow City Ballet Orchestra.


Moscow City Ballet is celebrated for its entertaining repertoire of full scale ballet classics.  Russian ‘big story’ ballet combines artistry, technique, narrative and live music for the absolute theatrical dancing experience.  Dance fans can not only marvel at the perfection of its corps de ballet but witness the excellent dexterity and grace of principal ballerinas Alevtina Lapshina and Liliya Oryekhova.


Founded by Victor Smirnov-Golovanov in 1988, Moscow City Ballet is one of Russia’s most successful and popular touring ballet companies, highly admired for its distinctive style, exciting choreography and exceptionally gifted dancers.


Touring the UK since the early 90’s Moscow City Ballet consistently perform over 100 shows annually to hundreds of thousands of ballet fans.  The company has bewitched audiences worldwide with its traditional ballets, proving that everyone enjoys a good story.

Dance is escapism and I’m delighted that people find enjoyment and pleasure in watching our gifted dancers perform our Russian jewels. Victor Smirnov-Golovanov, Moscow City Ballet.
