Ukraine artists will present the ballet Swan Lake in Kunming on January 7 and 8, 2012.

Kunming Theatre had recently signed the Swan Lake project with the ballet from the National Opera of Ukraine.

Tchaikovsky’s first ballet, Swan Lake is considered as one of the greatest classical ballets of all time.

The National Opera of Ukraine (formerly the Kiev Ballet Theatre), was established in the 1860's and soon developed a reputation for its fine ballet and opera work.

Some of the world famous dancers that have performed with The Kiev Ballet include: Serge Lifar, Maya Pisetskaya, Nadejda Pavlova and Marina Timofeeva from the Bolshoi Theatre and Irene Kolpakova, Alla Osipenko, Vladimir Malahov and Bregvadze from the Kirov Ballet.

To date there are 24 ballets in the repertory of The Kiev Ballet, which makes it one of the biggest repertories in the world.

The tickets are on sale starting Tuesday (Nov 1, 2011). (Editor: Ryan Li)
