“Swan Lake” staged in Hanoi
PANO – Artists from the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet on March 18 and 19 entertained ballet lovers with special scenes in the “Swan Lake”, one of the most popular ballets, at the Opera House.
Composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1875–76, the classical ballet is presented in different versions in many countries. However, those versions are mainly based on Russian choreographers Marius Petipa's and Lev Ivanov’s play, which was first staged in 1895 and reflected the beauty of classical ballet.
The “Swan Lake” marked a milestone in Tchaikovsky’s composition career and it is admired as the pinnacle of the classical ballet repertory.
