Special Fathom Features: A special production captured live from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Russia.
Experience the excitement and the beauty of world-class performances from the Bolshoi Ballet at your neighborhood cinema with the Bolshoi Ballet 2014-15 Season. The production of Swan Lake will be broadcast to select cinemas nationwide on Sunday, January 25.
At the palace, the royal family and their distinguished guests are gathered for Prince Siegfried’s birthday celebrations. In a majestic ceremony, Siegfried is made a knight; young girls try to attract his attention, as he must choose a wife during the ball. Overcome by the sudden awareness of his future responsibilities, he escapes into the night and meets a strange flock of swans by a magical lake.
White swan by day, human by night, the beautiful Odette awaits an oath of true love to break the curse. The great legend of the enigmatic swan/woman is one of the most romantic classical ballets, appropriately set in the era of courtly romance and characterized by elegance, style and harmony.
With Tchaikovsky’s famous, lyrical score, Swan Lake depicts the tragic love between Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried, and will no doubt be performed to perfection by the unparalleled virtuosity of Russia’s great Bolshoi Ballet. This universal and enchanting masterpiece of love, deception and drama is a must.
