Imperial Russian Ballet: Swan Lake

Imperial Russian Ballet: Swan Lake

Roman Forum

It is our honor to announce the performance of one of the most famous ballet ensembles in the world, the Imperial Russian Ballet company from Moscow on Friday, July 7, 2017, on the magnificent open air space of the Forum in Zadar starting at 9:30 PM. The ensemble will perform the most popular ballet of all time Swan Lake by P.I. Tchaikovsky. “Swan Lake” is the most lyrical of all Tchaikovsky’s ballets. The plot is based on one of the many variants of a folk tale about a girl turned into a bird by an evil force. Subsequently the gloomy ballet finale was changed: the prince and the swan throw themselves into the waves and destroy the evil spell. The performance ends with a happy apotheosis.
