Bolshoi’s Swan Lake Goes to South Korea

Russia and South Korea, on May 27-- 29, hosted Swan Lake performances dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

A significant event of this fest was a cross tour of the leading artists of the Bolshoi Ballet and the Korean National Ballet; the main roles in Korean production of Raymonda were danced by Bolshoi’s artists, while Korean dancers participated in the Bolshoi’s Romeo and Juliet (Y.Grigorovich version).

KNB and Bolshoi Ballet also share other creative cooperation. Marina Kondratieva, a leading master-repetiteur, Bolshoi Ballet, has repeatedly renewed the ballet productions for this company.

The previous tour of the Bolshoi’s Ballet and Orchestra were held in South Korea in 2005, and included performances of ballets Giselle and Spartacus.
