Growing up I have always loved dance. Not just dancing myself but to watch. But here is something that most would never know especially being mom to the DIVA.
I hated Ballet.
I thought it was slow and boring. My mom had even suggested looking into lessons for me at one point, to which I said no. I didn’t want anything to do with it.
As I got older I came to regret that decision. By my teens, I had fallen in love with the arts. From music, dance, musicals, broadway and much more. I saw my first Broadway play at 15 for Phantom of the Opera and have not stopped since.
Having a daughter who started very young with this love for classical arts has been a lot of fun. I not only find joy in watching her but having a buddy to attend shows and events with.
One show was seeing a local company perform Swan Lake a few years back. I knew Swan Lake is considered a very difficult ballet to dance to, and seeing it live highlighted the technicality. And now, you can too!
Audiences nationwide can see Swan Lake previously captured LIVE in 2015 from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Russia. Bolshoi proves once again that it is one of the world’s foremost ballet companies.
Fathom Events, BY Experience and Pathé Live present Tchaikovsky’s transcendent classic Swan Lake, performed and captured LIVE from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, to select cinemas nationwide on Sunday, February 5.
At moonlight on the banks of a mysterious lake, Prince Siegfried meets the bewitched swan-woman Odette. Completely spellbound by her beauty, he swears his faithfulness to her. However, the Prince realizes too late that Fate has another plan for him….
A ballet of ultimate beauty and a score of unparalleled perfection born at the Bolshoi in 1877. In the dual role of white swan Odette and her rival black swan Odile, prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova exudes both vulnerability and cunning through superb technical mastery, alongside the powerful and emotional Siegfried, Denis Rodkin. Including breathtaking scenes with the Bolshoi’s corps de ballet, this is classical ballet at its finest.

Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich
Libretto: Yuri Grigorovich
Cast: Svetlana Zakharova (Odette/Odile), Denis Rodkin (Prince Siegfried), Artemy Belyakov (the Evil Genius), Igor Tsvirko (the Fool)
