Royal Moscow Ballet, one of the renowned ballet ensembles, is going to perform two legendary works by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky — Swan Lake and the Nutcracker.

The ensemble can boast successful performances around the whole world; the dancers are used to sold out venues. Viewers can look forward to a great-line up and an amazing dance choreography.

Swan Lake has reaped success since 1877, when it was staged for the first time. Princess Odette is turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. A prince falls in love with her. However, he allows himself to be led astray by her black counterpart, Odile.  This breaks Odette’s heart. Luckily, she is able to forgive to the prince who fights the sorcerers. Nearly every balletmaster or choreographer who has re-staged Swan Lake has made modifications to the ballet's scenario; the Royal Moscow Ballet performances feature the one with a happy ending.
