St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre (SPBT) Swan Lake to the United States for the first time and they’re stopping at the National Theatre in Washington, DC!
We’re in February and I can’t honestly say that this has been a rough winter. But once temperatures dip below 66.7 degrees F, my internal DNA helix starts to unwind. I promise you that I can feel it happening.
One of the things that helps the winter days go by more quickly is taking the time to enjoy fine art and entertainment. That’s part of “Whole Living”.
On February 21-23, St. Petersburg Theatre Swan Lake is making it’s National Theatre debut featuring prima dancer Irina Kolesnikova. Not only is Irina the prima dancer in this production she’s also a wife and mom.
On a personal note, I can relate to that fact that while Irina loves her ballet career, she keeps her family close even while traveling internationally for this show.
Just in case you’re not familiar, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is about a princess that is turned into a swan when evil magic befalls her.
The ballet itself is set into four scenes. As this is the first visit for SPBT there’s no telling when the show will come back to the United States.
Watching Swan Lake at the National Theatre would be a great post Valentine’s Day treat that you can enjoy without the extra calories. You can’t go wrong with an experience such as this.
