Bolshoi Ballet — "Swan Lake"

Jun 10-14, 2020

Overview

Considered “the world’s greatest dance company” (The Independent), Russia’s premier ballet company makes a triumphant return to Chicago and to the historic Auditorium Theatre after 16 years. Yuri Grigorovich’s Swan Lake, set to Tchaikovsky’s iconic score (performed by the Chicago Philharmonic), incorporates choreography from masters Marius Petipa, Lev Ivanov, and Alexander Gorsky. Called “dazzling” and “immensely rewarding” (The Telegraph), Swan Lake highlights the “world’s greatest dancers” (BBC) and the “emotional, athletic, and theatrical style” (The Washington Post) that earned the company its international acclaim. Chicago is one of only two US cities to host the Bolshoi in 2020, and the exclusive presenter of Swan Lake.
