Bolshoi Ballet – Swan Lake
Considered the “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 their “emotional, athletic, and theatrical style” (The Washington Post) that earned the company its international acclaim. Chicago is the only city presenting the Bolshoi’s Swan Lake on the company’s 2020 United States tour.
