The immensely popular and world-renowned Russian theatre company will be returning to the London Coliseum this summer for a very short run.
The St Petersburg Ballet Theatre production of Swan Lake made a splash in 2015, having completely sold out with over 25,000 tickets sold. The company's brief stint at the London Coliseum this year will take place between Wednesday, 22 August 2018 and Sunday, 26 August 2018.
Swan Lake is widely considered to be the most popular ballet of all time worldwide and follows princess Odette, who has been transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. It is a classic love story between Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried. The St Petersburg Ballet Theatre production is a feast for the eyes and presents this balletic masterpiece in the way it was meant to be seen with stunning backdrops that were traditionally painted.
