Swan Lake
Russian Grand Ballet presents Swan Lake

There’s a good reason Swan Lake is often called "the ballet of all ballets." The combination of pure romanticism, a story about love and deception and Tchaikovsky’s famous music continue to reach new generations. Russian Grand Ballet was founded by graduates from the Great Russian choreographic schools, with principal dancers from the upper ranks of great ballet companies and academies. Today, Russian Grand Ballet Theatre boasts over 50 brilliant dancers.

Her co-host this year is standup comedian Morgan Picton. This year's lineup includes cover bands for Alice in Chains, Faith No More, The Moody Blues, Mötley Crüe and The Velvet Underground.
