El lago de los cisnes (Swan Lake), a production of the Ukrainian Classical Ballet, will surprise us at the Champs Elysées Theatre on 8 January at 20:00, capturing all the beauty and drama of authentic romantic ballet, an all-time classic that appeals to all generations.
In each of the performances, the main motivation of the Ukrainian Classical Ballet is to take care of the traditions and essence of the purest classical ballet, making them a feast for the senses with the charm of their costumes and the showiness of their decorations; generating a fascinating balance with the perfection of their lines and the sobriety of their choreographies.
The Ukrainian Classical Ballet recreates with singular mastery the key works of universal ballet. This emerging company based in the city of Kharkov, a true benchmark in this genre, is responsible for bringing to the stage masterpieces such as Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, etc.
A captivating love story (a prince, a beautiful young woman transformed into a swan by a sorcerer's spell, a deadly deception...), the virtuoso double role of Odette/Odile, the power of Tchaikovsky's music, and one of the greatest pas de deux in the ballet repertoire, make Swan Lake a unique experience.
A romantic setting, splendid choreography and an unforgettable story of doomed love combine to make Swan Lake an authentic classical ballet, acclaimed by audiences around the world.
During its long career, the Ukrainian Classical Ballet has toured extensively and successfully on the best stages in Europe and now comes to the Champs Elysées.
