Swan Lake, on its North American Tour in 2024-25. With new choreography and stage production by Andrei Litvinov, the classical score by Tchaikovsky comes to life. The State Ballet Theater of Ukraine premiered this new interpretation of the timeless classic to a full house in Ukraine on September 26-27, 2020. The ballet's choreography and design took many months to complete. Fortunately, it's now ready to tour in the USA and Canada from November 2024 to May 2025.

"This is a story for all ages. If you believe in a dream, the dream can come true!" says Tour Producer Michael Art. "Swan Lake has wonderful music - it's complex, philosophical, with love and tragedy. It has become one of the most striking ballets in our repertoire."

The performance features a ballet troupe of 50 dancers, and more than 200 new costumes were created specifically for this production. "When creating Swan Lake, we wanted to give the audience an unforgettable experience, immerse them in a fairy tale, and help them believe in miracles." Therefore, the costumes, scenery, and props turned out to be very bright and colorful. "Our main task is for the audience to get drunk on this amazing performance and want to come to the theater again. We are confident that the performance will interest audiences of all ages. After all, we all need a real fairy tale in our lives!"
