RBT presents Swan Lake
Independent ballet company with a multinational cast presents a timeless classic
It is all the splendor which has mesmerized ballet audiences for over a century, plus a bit more. Gorgeous, detailed hand painted sets and added choreography accent the production. Radiant hand sewn costumes following designs originally envisioned by the great theater masters enlighten further.
Dancers from nine different countries, including Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Armenia, Japan, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Kyrgyzstan gather together on one stage to honor the traditions of classical Russian Ballet.
After a successful 2019 US tour, RBT returns to San Rafael with a must-see RBT’s production of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s timeless classic!
Choreographer Nadezhda Kalinina (Mariinsky Theatre, Teatro Lirico, Omsk State Music Theatre) lovingly retouches the oldest St. Petersburg version of the ballet and adds her vision and something more, that undoubtedly will leave audiences flushed with emotion.
RBT’s dancers bring her choreography to life along with the new exquisite hand-painted sets and 150 new hand-sewn costumes. Designed by the young, accomplished Sergei Novikov (Mariinsky Theatre, Omsk State Music Theatre, St. Petersburg State Music Hall), these are in the century-old tradition of the great theatrical masters.
SFX makeup by Award-winning Irina Strukova (Crazy Rich Asians, Netflix, HBO) completes the already perfect glittering fantasy that is Swan Lake!
