As producer of the tour with decades of experience in presenting quality Russian ballet in Australia, Andrew Guild said, ‘The St Petersburg Ballet is truly traditional Russian classical ballet at its very best. This is the real thing, grand-scale Russian ballet. A complete classical full-length work. If you see only one ballet in your life, let it be this.’

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.
