Following Swan Lake’s disastrous 1877 Moscow premiere, which devastated Tchaikovsky, the ballet went on to triumph in St Petersburg in 1885 with new choreography by Petipa and Ivanov, confirming its composer’s genius and creating a worldwide success which continues to attract choreographers such as Matthew Bourne. This course is fully illustrated with slides, archive film clips and DVDs.
