RUSSIAN NATIONAL BALLET THEATRE RETURNS TO ARMSTRONG AUDITORUM PERFORMING SWAN LAKE

The esteemed Russian National Ballet Theatre returns to the Armstrong Auditorium for their third visit, performing an encore presentation of Swan Lake on Monday, January 26 and Tuesday, January 27. Both performances begin at 7:30 p.m.

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s. Many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union’s ballet institutions began to exercise their new found creative freedom by starting vibrant companies dedicated to the timeless tradition of classical Russian ballet. Today, the Russian National Ballet Theatre is its own institution, with 60 dancers of singular instruction and experience.

Swan Lake is considered by many to be one of the greatest classical ballets of all time. Its romance and beauty has mesmerized audiences for 137 years. Set to Tchaikovsky’s soaring score and choreographed by dance legend Marius Petipa, the dancers of the Russian National Ballet Theatre weave this epic tale of a young man’s love for the swan queen together with the exquisite grace and technical precision of the great Russian Ballet tradition.

“The Russian National Ballet Theatre is widely known to be one of the best in the world, and we are honored to bring such an internationally renowned ballet to Oklahoma for their third visit,” said Shane Granger, Armstrong Auditorium marketing director. “The auditorium’s exceptional acoustics and superior sightlines make a perfect setting for the complete experience.”

Tickets to see the Russian National Ballet Theatre begin at $45 for balcony seating and $97 for orchestra. For more information on ticket options, subscriptions, group rates or current exhibits, please visit www.armstrongauditorium.org or call 405-285-1010.
