Swan lake
Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" is one of the most famous and beloved ballets that has been performed all around the globe. Russian ballerinas who performed the role of the Queen of Swans Odessa became the legends of ballet world — among them were Marina Semenova, Galina Ulanova, Maya Plisetskaya, Raisa Struchkova and Natalie Bessmertnova.
Giselle
We will never know how the great ballet dancer Carlotta Grisi danced. But we will never forget her because two no less great men — choreographer Jules Perrot and poet Theophile Gautier — were in love with Carlotta and created "Giselle" for her based on the music of Adolphe Adan. Expressive albeit unpretentious melodies assured him the title of one of Paris' most fashionable composers.
Nutcracker
The "Nutcracker" is a classical ballet always drawing audiences of all ages. At the end of the 19th century the director of imperial theaters Prince Vsevolzhsky decided to create a magnificent and luxurious performance that would become the main event of the season. That's how Tchaikovsky got his commission to write the music to the "Nutcracker".
La Bayadere
At the end of the 19 th century a famous French choreographer Marius Petipa ( He was called Marius Ivanovich in Saint Petersburg) created the ballet "La Bayadère". It tells a tragic love story of a dancer and a warrior, based on an ancient Indian legend.
Romeo and Juliet
"Romeo and Juliet" is the most famous ballet of Sergei Prokofiev based on the cognominal tragedy of William Shakespeare "Romeo and Juliet" about a tragic love story. The ballet premiered in 1940 in St. Petersburg in the Kirov Theatre of Opera and Ballet (Mariinsky Theatre). It was staged by the ballet master Lavrovsky.
Sleeping beauty
"The Sleeping Beauty" is an extraordinary ballet set to Tchaikovsky's music. It is known as the encyclopedia of classical dance. The idea for ballet based on Charles Perrault's fairytale "La Belle au bois dormant" (1697) belonged to Prince Vsevolozhsky. He decided to reconstruct the French courtier ballet of the 17th-18th centuries.
