Mikhailovsky’s Swan Lake

Mikhailovsky's Swan Lake

On Friday night, I skipped ballet class to see Mikhailovsky Ballet’s Swan Lake at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and I am in love with the performance! Check out the link for photos, as well as a video, of the sets & costumes!

Odette/Odile: Oksana Bondareva
Prince Siegfried: Victor Lebedev 

It was such a pity, however, that there were not enough attendees. I am quite certain it is because the majority of Vancouverites are unaware that one can purchase 1/2 price tickets on the day of the performance. Mine was around $35-45 and I got to sit in the middle of the balcony. :) It was certainly a delightful treat to see one of my favourite ballets for the 2nd time (my 1st time was 10 years ago, when the St Petersburg or National Ballet of Russia performed in Taipei).
