Swan Lake with St Petersburg Ballet @ BAM
16 February 2020 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Legendary Russian prima ballerina Irina Kolesnikova and the globally lauded St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre make their US debut. Acclaimed everywhere from London to Sydney, Johannesburg to Paris, with a wealth of superlative credits attesting to her mastery, Kolesnikova brings together guest stars from the world’s leading ballet companies to this spellbinding production of Tchaikovsky’s timeless, beloved classic. As Odette-Odile, Kolesnikova’s signature role, she has been praised by the Irish Daily Mail as “stunning to watch, breathtakingly emotional and pinpoint precise.” Founded 25 years ago, the St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre (SPBT) is renowned not just for its beautiful Vaganova-trained dancers, but also for its stunning full-length productions. The company travels internationally performing classical masterpieces from its repertoire, including Giselle, Don Quixote, La Bayadere, Romeo and Juliet, The Nutcracker, and Sleeping Beauty. The performance will be accompanied by the Chamber Orchestra of New York. The conductor is Timur Gorkovenko.
