Tchikovsky’s ballet masterpiece “Swan Lake” premiered in Hanoi on October 7 featuring artists from the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet Theatre.
Hundreds of artists, dancers and musicians took part in the performance under the baton of conductor Dong Quang Vinh.
It took several months of practice to prepare for the concert. The new production has captivated audiences with traditional Russian style combined with new Vietnamese choreography.
"Swan Lake" is a timeless love story that mixes magic, tragedy and romance. It has mesmerized audiences for over a century, and is based on a German fairy tale. Tchaikovsky’s score tells the tragic love story of Prince Siegfried and the Swan Princess Odette, who is cursed to be a swan by day but a young woman at night./. VNA
