The Russian Grand Ballet is pleased to announce the performance of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” in Manassas on Saturday, Oct. 1 at the Hylton Performing Arts Center. Doors to the performance will open at 6 p.m., with the show beginning at 7 p.m.
The Russian Grand Ballet brings the classic ballet to life with Russia’s brightest ballet starsperforming the full-length production. Tickets are available now and can be purchased through HyltonCenter.org, by phone at 888.945.2468, or in person at the Hylton Center Box Office.
The Russian Grand Ballet has established a reputation for talent and versatility by touring the world with both full-length traditional ballets and shorter divertissements. Its ballet master, Honored Artist of Russia Vladimir Troshchenko, is highly dedicated to the timeless tradition of classical Russian ballet.
The Honored Artist of Ukraine Olga Kifyak will be dancing Odile/Odette with the Honored Artist of Ukraine Eugeniy Svetlitsa as Prince Siegfried. Antonina Radiyevskaya, Viktoriya Velasquez and Constantine Mayorov will be performing Swan Lake Pas de Trois for the 35-city North American tour.
“There’s a good reason why ‘Swan Lake’ is so often called the ‘ballet of all ballets’ – the combination of pure romanticism, the story about love and deception and Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet music all continue to reach new generations of audiences,” says Troshchenko. “Manassas’s growing art scene makes it the perfect location for the Russian Grand Ballet’s Swan Lake performance. It is an incredible opportunity for both the younger and older generations to experience the arts and enjoy a ballet classic.”
“Swan Lake,” based on Russian folklore and German legend, follows a heroic young prince as he works to free the beautiful swan maiden from an evil spell. The ballet is in three acts with two intermissions, with music by Tchaikovsky, choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, and libretto by Vladimir Begichev and Vasily Getzer.
Running time is approximately two hours and 30minutes.
