The Moscow Festival Ballet presents Swan Lake on Saturday, April 15, 2017 8:00pm at New Jersey Performing Arts Center. A company of 50 dancers, direct from Moscow, will perform the tale of a beautiful woman doomed to be a swan in this opulent production set to Tchaikovsky’s score.

The Moscow Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 when its Artistic Director, Sergei Radchenko, a legendary principal dancer with the Bolshoi Ballet, envisioned a company that would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov ballet companies in an independent and exciting company. Leading dancers from across Russia, under Radchenko’s direction, have forged new productions of timeless classics, such as Giselle, Don Quixote and Carmen.

Whether you’re a dance aficionado or a newcomer, this ballet about an evil sorcerer who stands in the way of true love, performed to heart-wrenching music, is a must-see.
