National Ballet of China: Swan Lake

National Ballet of China: Swan Lake

The National Ballet of China, founded in 1959, has created a unique fusion between western classical ballet and Chinese culture by developing its own works that represent the varied characteristics of China. On its fi rst Canadian tour, this production of Swan Lake, choreographed by the great Russian ballerina Natalia Makarova, showcases the company's solid foundation in Russian-style classical ballet. The strong, assured ensemble is grandly suited to the extreme demands of the classical style. The placement of the dancer's body, the articulation of phrasing, the ravishing fl ow of movement and the perfect outlines of a gesture as it lingers on the air, are tribute to the gifted dancers as well as to the academic discipline that has shaped the entire ensemble.
