White Swan – Swan Lake

“White swan – Swan Lake, from the classic to the contemporary”, is a one of a kind combination of the legendary choreography of Lev Ivanov and the innovative choreography of Andonis Foniadakis, the national bale of Greece art director.

In the first part, the thirty dancers of the Israeli ballet, starring Bolshoi soloists Evgenia Obraztsova and Dmitry Gudanov, will perform the second act from Swan Lake. The second part will present a contrast to the first – a free innovative version of the classic choreographed especially for the Israeli ballet by Foniadakis.

“The choreography is great and so is the performance … It’s been a while since I got so emotional from the Israeli ballet” (Ruth Eshel, H’aaretz, 2016)
