ROHM Presents Swan Lake
When: 28th and 29th at 7:00 pm; and a special matinee on 30th at 4:00 pm
Where: Royal Opera House Muscat
The ROHM is presenting one of the most famous and best-loved ballets of all time – Swan Lake. The work combines a timeless story with an incomparably beautiful score composed in 1865-66 by the great master, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The lake on which a white swan swims was formed by the tears of the sorrowful mother of Odette, a lovely young woman changed into a swan by an evil sorcerer. With a golden crown on her head, Odette swims at the head of a flock of swan-maidens under the spell of the Sorcerer. It is only at night that they can emerge in human form. The spell will be broken if a prince swears eternal fidelity to Odette. During a hunting expedition, Prince Seigfried and his entourage happen upon the lake at dusk when the swans are swimming to shore. The Prince raises his crossbow and is about to shoot the leading swan, but stops when, to his amazement, the most beautiful woman he has ever seen appears as the swan vanishes. Mutually enraptured, Odette and the Prince fall in love and it seems there will be happy ending until the Sorcerer intervenes and a Black Swan appears…
The ballet is impeccably performed by Kazakhstan’s prestigious Astana Opera Ballet Company which was founded in 2013 and has rapidly risen to a high rank on the international stage. Tchaikovsky’s music is performed by the world-class Orchestra of Teatro Carlo Felice of Genoa. In this exceptional production, staging is by the acclaimed Kazakh director and choreographer, Tursynbek Nurkaliyev.
