Bolshoi Ballet season in Royal Ballet
29 July - 17 August
"In 1963, Victor Hochhauser brought Bolshoi Ballet to Covent Garden and it was a visit in which British affection for Russian ballet threw off any last reserve. We had taken Russian ballet to our hearts ...." Clement Crisp
"The Bolshoi ballet opened the season with Swan Lake, the most famous of all ballets, in which the love of Prince Siegfried and his Swan Queen, Odette, is imperilled by sinister supernatural forces.
Set to Tchaikovsky's lyrical, passionate score, the magic and drama of this timeless story unfold in a memorable production by renowned choreographer Yuri Grigorovich."
