“SWAN Lake” is coming to Queanbeyan and excitement is mounting as locals boast this will be an event that’s bound to entice Canberrans across the border.

Just one night in a 45-town tour of “Swan Lake” and “Sleeping Beauty” to Australia and NZ by the Russian National Ballet Theatre, it will be a chance for older dance lovers to revisit memories and for young fans to see a full-length ballet, not just extracts, performed by more than 50 dancers.

The company was founded with the idea of creating “promising young theatre with high creative potential”, and is supported by the Ministry of Culture in the Russian Federation.

“Swan Lake” is quintessentially a tale of good and evil – Odette, the white swan, versus Odile, the black swan – and is probably the most loved of all works in the ballet repertory. With the music of Tchaikovsky, this production by Evgeny Amosov evokes the Russian Imperial world and the haunting moonlit lakeside where the human and spirit worlds collide.

“Swan Lake”, The Q, Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre, Thursday, October 29. Bookings to theq.net.au or 6285 6290.
