Vastavam web: After its resounding success in 2017, the iconic ballet, ‘Swan Lake’, is all set to make a return to India with a multi-city tour in March this year.The co-production by the Royal Russian Ballet and Navrasa Duende will begin its tour on March 13 with 25 shows in Mumbai, followed by 5 shows each in Ahmedabad, Kolkata and New Delhi.Dinesh B Singh, founder and CEO of Navrasa Duende said it was the “delightful” response they received that made them bring “Swan Lake” back to the country, this time, with shows across different cities.

“All we can say right now is that the shows will be as grand and splendid as the first time around, and we will leave no stone unturned to ensure that all of them are as big a success as ‘Swan Lake’ was in its maiden Indian staging in Delhi,” he said.Over a century old, ‘Swan Lake’ is performed on the classical compositions written by Russian composer, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.The story originates from Russian folk tales, with Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse, as the principal character.
