Swan Lake on Ice in Belgrade

The ballet spectacle ‘Swan Lake on Ice’, performed by the SaintPetersburg State Ballet, will be staged at Sava Centre on 14th December. Due to a huge interest, another 6pm show was added.

Directed by Constantine Rasadin, over 40 ballet dancers in fantastic costumes will skate in this ballet show. Out of the forty ballet dancers, twenty come from the Russian State Ballet and have the title of the Russian Master of Sport which guarantees that they are going to meet the high standards in choreography, grace and artistic approach movement required to perform in this ballet show on ice.

Based on Russian folk tales, the original ballet premiered in 1877, and is a classic fairytale. The princess Odette has been transformed into a swan by the evil Baron Von Rothbart and the spell can only be broken by the power of true love. Prince Siegfried, taking a break from his search for a wife to go hunting with his friends, sees Odette in the human form she takes at night and falls in love.

The Baron, however, has other plans, and tricks Siegfried into falling in love with his daughter, Odile, at the ball in the palace where the prince is to choose his wife. The conflict between good and evil thus forms the dramatic climax of the show.

This dramatic new ice interpretation of one of the most popular ballets will have you on the very edge of your seat. Swan Lake on Ice is the unique performance from one of the world’s premier ice dance troupes.
