For the first time ever the world's most loved ballet SWAN LAKE is
being presented Live from the city where it was created - and by the company
which produces many of the greatest dance stars (Pavlova, Nureyev, Barishnikov - many more).
This special event - celebrating 275 years since Russian ballet began - will be available
for cinema audiences across the globe to enjoy live in both 2D and 3D.
The "genius" of Tchaikovsky's incredible score and the "genius" of the choreography
of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov bring you the version of Swan Lake the world loves.
Lyrical, mysterious and dramatic, the Mariinsky creates an imaginary world where
Prince Siegfried and the swan-princess Odette affirm their love for each other,
conquering the forces of evil.
Tchaikovsky's ravishing music combines with peerless choreography showing the
Mariinsky's famed corps de ballet in all its beauty. Starring Ekaterina Kondaurova
in the classic role of Odette/Odile. Now captured in the same 3D technology as Avatar,
Hugo and the Oscar-winning Life of Pi.
Captured live in stunning high definition and available in both in 3D and 2D from the historic Mariinsky
Theatre in St. Petersburg, the Imperial Capital of Russia on a unique occasion, the
production will include Hollywood, Russian, and other international guest stars - and
exclusive, glamorous presentations exclusively for the cinema audience.
