Swan Lake is a timeless tale: Prince Siegfried falls in love with Odette, Queen of the Swans but is tricked into the ultimate betrayal, leading to tragedy.
A live orchestra performing the familiar scores is the perfect complement to these remarkable ballets.
This season the Smirnov-Golovanov productions will be presented by international artistes hand-picked by Ukrainian-born Ludmila Nerubashenko.
The legacy of the late Smirnov-Golovanov (Honoured Arts Worker of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic and former Artistic Director of Odessa State Opera and Ballet Theatre) is preserved by his widow Ludmila Nerubashenko. Ukrainian-born Ludmila is the driving force in schooling young artistes with the physicality, artistry and creativity to faithfully interpret that legacy. She will select the cream of these young dancers to visit the UK in 2023.
