Choreography Sergei Vanaev
Premiere Date February 2, 2013
Review - Sharma Haward, The Day
“Clearly, choreographer Sergei Vanaev’s treatment of “Swan Lake” is not conventional –This is for contemporary audiences, it keeps the lush score by Tchaikovsky and the enchanted element of swan-humans, but has its own story line that plucks at the primal chords inherent in human nature – envy, desire, covetousness, and the ego’s ceaseless battle between good and evil. It rises from the muck of primeval emotions to explore humanity’s aspirations for enlightenment.”
Dramatic. Striking. Awe-Inspiring. This contemporary version of Swan Lake is choreographed by Bolshoi trained Sergei Vanaev, to the dramatic score of Tchaikovsky. After an acclaimed debut in Europe, this powerful avant-garde retelling premières in the US.
Full work (I act) 25 minutes, can be arranged to 17 min.
Available for touring Fall 2013.
