The Royal Russian Ballet is bringing Swan Lake to Mumbai, for 25 shows across 13 days, at the National Centre for the Performing Arts. The original composition by Tchaikovsky has undergone several changes since it premiered at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow 141 years ago. From Mumbai, Swan Lake will travel to Ahmedabad, Kolkata and back to New Delhi. This may have to do with The Black Swan, Darren Aronofsky’s Oscar-winning 2010 film, which was about a production of Swan Lake. Whatever the reason behind the reception, the Russian ballet company was thrilled by the response.
