Ballet Swan Lake Opens the 151st Season in the National Theatre in Belgrade

Ballet by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Swan Lake, after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, choreographed and directed by Konstantin Kostyukov, opened the 151st season of the National Theatre in Belgrade.

The whole ensemble of the Ballet Company and the Orchestra of the National Theatre in Belgrade, under the baton of Đorđe Pavlović, took part in the performance.

Costumes and set have been designed by renowned Italian fashion and costume designer Renato Balestra. 

Swan Lake is a true gem of classical ballet repertoire and, at the same time, the most often performed ballet in history owing to its esoterism, magic and forceful expressiveness, features vows of love and deceit, maturing through making decisions, human duality, cunningness, sacrifice, unifying in fictive death and apotheosis of ideal love.
