The Moscow Festival Ballet will bring the romantic ballet classic Swan Lake to the stage at the Georgia Southern University Performing Arts Center on March 6.

Set to the music of composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Swan Lake follows the fairytale love story between Prince Siegfried and Odette. At his coming of age celebration, the prince is inspired by a group of swans heading toward a nearby lake. When he approaches them, they transform into human form, and he is taken with the beauty and grace of swan queen Odette.  He falls in love with her instantly.

Odette tells the prince of a curse cast upon the swans by a wicked sorcerer, Rotbart, which can only be broken with an oath of everlasting love. Prince Siegfried vows to save her, but when Rotbart learns of his quest, he tries to tear the couple apart.

In the past several decades, the Moscow Ballet has taken extensive international tours and, under the direction of Sergei Radchenko, has brought together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov ballet companies. The Moscow Ballet was founded in 1989 by Radchenko. 

Leading dancers from throughout Russia have created, under Radchenko’s direction, such timeless classics as Giselle, Don Quixote, Paquita and Carmen.

The Moscow Festival Ballet has toured extensively throughout the United States, beginning with a coast-to-coast tour in the winter of 1997.

The curtain goes up on the performance at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25, and can be purchased by calling (912) 478-7999, or online at www.GeorgiaSouthern.edu/pac.
