(Newark, New Jersey - February 28, 2017) New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents an evening with Swan Lake: Moscow Festival Ballet. 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. 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, Sergei 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 company. Leading dancers from across Russia, under Radchenko’s direction, have forged new productions of timeless classics, such as Giselle, Don Quixote and Carmen. Saturday, April 15, 2017 8:00 PM at Prudential Hall. Get your tickets now at NJPAC.org or 888.GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722)
