Swan Lake delighted Dubrovnik last night. In a packed Dubrovnik Sports Centre one of the most famous ballet companies in the world, the Imperial Russian Ballet, performed Swan Lake.
“It was magical night, a real spectacular evening. I wish we could see such performances more often in Dubrovnik,” commented a member of the last night’s audience. This was the Imperial Russian Ballets second visit to Dubrovnik, last year they performed The Nutcracker. The Imperial Russian Ballet Company comprises 40 dancers from the major ballet schools of Russia: Moscow and Perm.
The fairytale of a girl who was transformed into a swan came to life in Dubrovnik last night. Today, 138 years after the first performance, the Imperial Russian Ballet presented this masterpiece as a ballet in three acts.
