A celebrated Romantic ballet on the same scale as Giselle, Tchaikovsky’s first ballet composition, Swan Lake, remains incredibly popular throughout the world. In a first ever visit to Montreal, the Polish National Ballet, driven by the vision of Artistic Director Krzysztof Pastor, breaks new ground by presenting this monument of the repertoire.

Preserving the essence of the original ballet, the plot unfolds in Imperial Russia. The Tsarevich Nicholas is torn between his first love, Alix of Hesse, and his infatuation with a Polish ballerina named Mathilde Kschessinska, an affair that causes a stir at the St. Petersburg court on the eve of his accession to the throne. Straddling reality and fantasy, this spectacular production was an outright triumph at its premiere in Warsaw in 2017 and an immense achievement of overwhelming grace.
