Hailed from London to Paris, the internationally acclaimed St Petersburg Ballet will arrive in Melbourne in June 2015 to present their full-length classic production of the world’s most loved ballet, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.
First performed in St Petersburg in 1895, the immortal and enchanting Swan Lake, with its unrivalled “white acts”, its spectacular and dramatic ballroom scene, sublime music and deeply moving story, is the ballet that towers above all others.
Swan Lake will be presented at the new performance venue, Plenary at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from Saturday June 20 2015. This will be the first time a ballet presentation will be hosted at Plenary, a plush, state-of-the-art theatre space that has previously hosted performances by Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and other major theatre events.
Tickets for the limited Melbourne season go on sale at 9am on Monday October 27 2014.
