SCHENECTADY, N.Y.—MARCH 15, 2018—A company of 50 dancers, direct from Moscow, performs the tale of a beautiful woman doomed to be a swan in this opulent production set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score.

Swan Lake—Moscow Festival Ballet soars to Proctors, 8 p.m. Thursday, March 29.

Whether you’re a dance aficionado or a newcomer, this ballet about an evil sorcerer who stands in the way of true love, performed to heart-wrenching music, is a must-see.

The Moscow Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 when its Artistic Director, Sergey Radchenko, a legendary principal dancer with the Bolshoi Ballet, envisioned a company that would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov ballet companies in an independent and exciting troupe. Leading dancers from across Russia, under Radchenko’s direction, have forged new productions of timeless classics, such as GiselleDon Quixote and Carmen.
