THE ACCLAIMED Vienna Festival Ballet bring the magic of ballet to Evesham this Easter Monday, dancing Swan Lake – the world’s most popular ballet – live on the arts centre stage.
Dance fans and those who’ve never seen live ballet before can all enjoy this performance – and afterwards there will be a chance to meet the cast of dancers.
Swan Lake is the ballet that captures the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy. Adding lavish costumes, stunning scenery, international stars and glorious music from Tchaikovsky makes this an event not to be missed.
Returning by popular demand, Vienna Festival Ballet’s Swan Lake promises to be a ‘delightful treat’ for ballet fans and interested observers alike. The performances also offer an ideal opportunity to introduce children to the art and skills of ballet.
The celebrated Austrian dancer Peter Mallek founded Vienna Festival Ballet in 1980 after his illustrious career as a dancer of international renown. Now in their 35th year of producing quality ballet productions, the company continues to experience remarkable success and perform great classical ballets all over the world.
VFB are known for their beautiful and lavish hand-made costumes and head dresses. Their productions have all the elegance and extravagance associated with the best of ballet. Notable for the continued freshness and strength of their dancing casts, VFB have top-talented dancers including graduates from the Royal Ballet School, British, Australian and Italian soloists, and guest stars from Vienna and South Africa.
