SWAN LAKE, the most beloved ballets in the world, tells the classic love story between Prince Siegfried and the Swan Princess Odette divided by the villainous sorcerer Rothbart in a story where true love conquers all. The iconic “white acts” with tutus, pointe shows and brilliant bravura dancing is everything you expect from Russian classical ballet.

Founded in 1994, The St Petersburg Ballet Theatre is renowned globally not just for its beautiful Vaganova trained dancers but also for its stunning, grand, full-length productions. The Company travels internationally complete with breathtaking scenery and magnificent costumes. The Company has in its repertoire the classical masterpieces Giselle, Don Quixote, La Bayadère, Les Sylphides, Paquita and Sleeping Beauty. The incredibly popular company is in such demand that it gives 200 to 250 performances every year.

As producer of the tour with decades of experience in presenting quality Russian ballet around the world, Andrew Guild said, “The St Petersburg Ballet Theatre is truly traditional Russian classical ballet at its very best. This is the real thing, grand-scale Russian ballets; complete classical full-length works. If you see only one ballet company in your life, let it be this one.”
