Review: Moscow City Ballet, Royal Concert Hall
SET to Tchaikovsky's timeless score, the acclaimed Moscow City Ballet company gave a breathtaking performance of one of the world's most-loved ballets.
Swan Lake is the epic love story of Prince Siegfried and the Swan Queen, Odette, who would rather die together then be apart after they are tricked by the evil Enchanter Von Rothbart and the Black Swan Odile.
Female principal Liliya Oryekhova, playing the dual role of Odette/Odile, captured the bird's graceful, lithe movements with leaps seemingly suspended in the air. As Odile, she thrilled the audience with 32 flawless fouette pirouettes.
Male principal Talgat Kazhabayev lifted the prima ballerina as if she was as light as a feather. Daniil Orlov's Von Rothbart was exemplary as he covered huge areas of the stage with the lightest of leaps.

All the dancers – wearing spectacular costumes – demonstrated wonderful characterisation. The Hungarian, Spanish, Neapolitan and Polish Brides dazzled, and the Jester added doses of sprightly humour.
The corps de ballet of graceful swans glided in perfect symmetry and the cygnets' pas de quatre was another highlight.
The orchestra provided a perfect framework – Moscow City Ballet's Swan Lake was simply beautiful to watch.
