A young Prince struggles to free a girl from an evil curse in ballet’s most iconic work. The Russian National Ballet Theatre combines artistic mastery and technical perfection, all set to Tchaikovsky’s immortal music.
France’s CULTURE magazine wrote of the RNBT, “An evening of glorious theatre. The sets and costumes were dazzling in their color and style. From the moment the curtain rose to audible gasps of delight until the final ovation, the Russian National Ballet Theatre had their audience spellbound.”
The RNBT has based their production on Marius Petipa’s choreography from his 1895 revival for the Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg as part of their mission to preserve the grand traditions of Russian ballet for audiences all over the world.
