Swan Lake

For the first time in its 175-year history, State Ballet of Georgia – which is led by former prima ballerina Nina Ananiashvili – will perform in London, bringing its production of Swan Lake to the London Coliseum for a few days next summer.

Accompanied by the English National Opera Orchestra, the company of sixty dancers will tell the timeless story set to Tchaikovsky’s iconic score.

Swan Lake is one of our best repertoires. It combines elaborate costumes, stunning choreography, exquisite ornaments and the young generation of dancers with Georgian characteristics. Swan Lake has always had an important place in my career. It was the first ballet that I performed in the Bolshoi Theatre and was my first and final significant performance at American Ballet Theater. I can’t wait to share it with audiences in London for the first time.”

– Nina Ananiashvili, Artistic Director of State Ballet of Georgia
