Everything was beautiful at the ballet. Graceful men lift lovely girls in white. Yes, Everything was beautiful at ballet – A Chorus Line.
This was the first ballet I have ever attended, so I did not really know what to expect other than pretty girls dancing extremely complicated steps. I also knew the story of Swan Lake, considering as a child The Swan Princess was one of my favourite cartoons. So getting to see the Swan Lake, the immortal classic love story of Prince Siegfried and Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse – was really a mesmerising experience.
St Petersburg Ballet Theatre was founded in 1994 and is renowned globally not just for its beautiful Vaganova trained dancers, but also for its stunningfull-length productions.
