Description

Swan Lake is one of the most popular ballets from the 19th century.

However, love will overcome all in Tchaikovsky's romantic ballet.

About the event:
Vladimir Petrovich Begichev, intendant of the Russian Imperial Theatres in Moscow, commissioned Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake in 1875. Like The Nutcracker, Swan Lake was unsuccessful after its first year of performance. Conductors, dancers and audiences alike thought Tchaikovsky's music was too complicated and too difficult for dancing. The production’s original choreography by German ballet master, Julius Reisinger, was uninspiring and unoriginal. Little is known about the original production of Swan Lake – no notes, techniques or instruction concerning the ballet was written. Only a little has been found in letters and memos. It wasn’t until after Tchaikovsky’s death that Swan Lake was revived. Much of the Swan Lake we know today was a revision by the famous choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov in 1895.
