Russian National Ballet Theatre Australian Tour Dates for Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty

  • Australian National Tour
  • September – November 2012

 Beautiful full length performances of two of the most cherished classical ballets of all time

 Russian National Ballet Theatre commences a tour of full-length classical performances of Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty in over 25 cities across Australia from September.

Russian National Ballet Theatre, with more than 50 ballet dancers,  has toured the USA, China, Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Guatemala, Poland, South Korea and Japan transforming Russian Ballet.

Tchaikovsky instantly recognisable music set against the wonderfully dark story of good against evil; Swan Lake is one of the most famous and loved of all ballets. This production by Evgeny Amosov, Artistic Director of The Russian National Ballet Theatre, as heralded around the world

Swan Lake’s glamorous set is evocative of the Russian Imperial world in which the ballet was created, while the haunting moonlit lakeside is perfect for the tragic conflict of the human and spirit worlds and allows the audience to be swept away in the vulnerability of Odett/ Odile.

One of the most lavish theatrical events of all time, the original St Petersburg staging of Sleeping Beauty in 1890 was a spectacular illustration of the Russian Imperial style at its zenith. Today it remains the cornerstone of the Russian National Ballet Theatre’s repertory. The current staging is also directed by Evgeny Amosov accompanied by a huge cast in a fairytale setting and glorious Tchaikovsky score. This version has all the elements of an enduring fairy tale: romance, poetry, fate, goodness versus evil, and of course, love!

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded with support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation. The basis for the creation of the theatre was necessity of promising young theatre with high creative potential, both the classical and contemporary.The theatre’s repertoire includes not only classical performances such as The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Scotland Suite, Don Quixote and Gala Concert, but also modern ballets set to the music of Mozart, Bach, Ravel and others.

In 1976 Artistic Director Evgeny Amosov, graduated from the Perm Academy of choreography and then joined the Ekaterinburg Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet as a principal dancer. He is also a Prize-winner of Russian and International choreography con-tests of ballet-masters and ballet dancers. In 1988 was Amosov was awarded the title Honored artist of Russia and in 1990 – was the leading solo dancer of the state theatre Russian ballet.  From 1993 till 1998 he studied at the Russian Academy of theatrical arts. In 2001 Amosov co-founded the company Russian National Ballet Theatre.
