Hailed from London to Paris, the internationally acclaimed St Petersburg Ballet will commence their first Australian tour in fifteen years in Adelaide at Her Majesty’s Theatre from 7 – 11 December 2016. The Company will present their full-length classic production of the world’s most loved ballet, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. Tickets go on sale from Friday 15 July through all BASS outlets and BASS online.
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.
Founded in 1994, The St Petersburg Ballet is renowned globally not just for its beautiful Vaganova trained dancers but also for its stunning, grand, full-length productions. The sixty strong Company travels internationally complete with breathtaking scenery and magnificent costumes. It is the only classical ballet company in the world that is completely independent of government financial aid or sponsor funding. The Company has in its repertoire the classical masterpieces Giselle, Don Quixote, La Bayadère, Les Sylphides, Paquita, The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty. The incredibly popular company is in such demand that it gives 200 to 250 performances every year.
