One of Europe’s most acclaimed ballet troupes, the Voronezh State Ballet Theatre of Russia, is slated to perform “Swan Lake” at Mexico City’s Teatro Metropolitan on Sunday, April 24.

The stunning fairytale ballet, composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1876, will be performed with a contemporary choreographic interpretation led by the troupe’s director, Alexander Litiagin.

The Voronezh State Ballet company, composed of 54 renowned dancers, hails from one of the most artistically rich regions of Russia, the central region that connects western Russia with the Urals and Siberia.

The romantic storyline of “Swan Lake” revolves around the doomed affair of Prince Siegfried (played by Iván Negrobov) and the beautiful swan Odette (performed by Martha Lutsko).

“Swan Lake” was Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score and famously paved the way for his later career in theatre arts.

There will be two performances at the Teatro Metropolitan, located at Independencia 90 in Mexican capital’s Colonia Centro Histórico, on April 24, one at noon and one at 5 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster or at the door.
