Moscow City Ballet
Last night the Opera House hosted the opening performance of one of Tchaikovsky's better known ballets; the very beautiful yet sad story of Swan Lake.
An enthusiastic if somewhat noisy audience (when did Ballet fans start eating crisps and texting) sat mostly enthralled as the beautiful and delicate Prima Ballerina Lily Oryekhova, delivered an outstanding performance in a dual role as the Swan Queen Odette, with whom the handsome Prince Siegfried falls deeply in love and also astonishingly plays the Black Swan (Odile).
The swan like mannerisms and fluidity of this Premiere ballerina are exceptional and unbelievable to watch; such amazing stamina from this waif like form.
Overall a wonderful performance of love conquers all evils, with gorgeous costumes and orchestral accompaniment makes this a 'must see' for the Moscow Ballets current UK tour which moves south next week, so book you seats now!
