In March 2010 The Russian State Ballet, featuring Stars from The Bolshoi, captivated audiences with their spectacular performances of Swan Lake for the opening run in the presence of Her Excellency The President of Ireland, Mary McAleese.
Last March the same Russian State Ballet returned to Dublin with Swan Lake and Giselle, staging extra shows due to genuine public demand, and receiving standing ovations after every performance – unprecedented for ballet in Ireland!
Everyone who saw her last March was captivated by The Bolshoi Star Nina Kaptsova whose beauty and grace left her audiences breathless and enchanted; and this time around we have arranged for her to be partnered, for the first time , by Evgeny Ivanchenko, Premier Dancer of The Mariinsky Ballet (previously The Kirov) and Honoured Artist of Russia. We should see something really special!
Accompanied by The RTE National Symphony Orchestra, The Russian State Ballet will be performing their acclaimed production of the all-time favourite Swan Lake at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre this March.
You will enjoy some of the best dancers in the world, dazzling costumes and sets, and the most beautiful music from Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev. In fact the best that classical ballet can offer!
