Swan Lake

The acclaimed State Ballet of Georgia comes to London with a full-length classic production of Swan Lake.

28 Aug–8 Sep 2024

For the first time in its 175 year history, acclaimed State Ballet of Georgia comes to London in August 2024 with a full-length classic production of Swan Lake. All performances are accompanied by the English National Opera Orchestra.

Based at the stunning Opera and Ballet State Theatre in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, this company of “versatile and accomplished” dancers (The New York Times) has soared under the bold artistic direction of world-renowned, Georgian-born Nina Ananiashvili, former prima ballerina with Bolshoi Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. Ananiashvili, considered one of the all-time greats, returned home to her native country in 2004 to lead the company. The company’s last visit to the UK was in 2008 where they performed at the Edinburgh International Festival

Comprising a company of 70, sumptuous sets, and magnificent costumes, State Ballet of Georgia’s Swan Lake is set to be spectacular!

From the first immortal bars of Tchaikovsky’s score, State Ballet of Georgia’s Swan Lake beckons the audience to another world. Ballet fans, including those who will make Swan Lake their first experience at the ballet, will be captivated by Prince Siegfried’s love for the Swan Queen Odette and the drama of their battle against the evil sorcerer Rothbart.

From the unforgettable corps de ballet moving in magical unison as majestic, glimmering swans to the fiery and refined dances in the spectacular ballroom scenes, this romantic fable inspires awe and wonder.

“The Company is dazzlingly polished, strong in technique and appearance. The corps of swans is beautiful and immaculate in their footwork and lines, creating a breathtaking effect.”

Spoleto Festival, Charleston City Paper

“Ms. Ananiashvili took in the adoration like air, her pride more than personal as she carried the Georgian flag. She bears the standard of her small nation well.”
