The Royal Czech Ballet will present to Australia audiences in September and October, its production of Swan Lake. The Royal Czech Ballet company compromises elite dancers from Europe, including Italy, Moldova and Ukraine and was formed in the Czech Republic in 2008. 

Artistic Director Andrey Scharaev is delighted that the Royal Czech Ballet has the opportunity to present Swan Lake to audiences in Australia and New Zealand. 

“In this difficult time for everyone, when there is a conflict in Ukraine, we want to bring good through our art,” Scharaev said. “We have an international company with dancers from different European countries, including Ukraine. The theatre is something that has always united people and always will do.”Swan Lake, set to the magnificent score of Tchaikovsky, is the most romantic of all the classical ballets. The story line is ultimately one where the virtues of love and forgiveness conquer evil and betrayal. Swan Lake, performed by the Royal Czech Ballet, will premiere at the Theatre Royal in Hobart on Friday 2 September.

The performances offer ballet enthusiasts their first opportunity since the Covid-19 pandemic to enjoy an international ballet company visiting our part of the world.
