The Saint Petersburg State Ballet on Ice presents Swan Lake, the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse, at the Municipal Theater of Arequipa in May.
The Saint Petersburg State Ballet on Ice (former the Leningrad State Ballet on Ice) was founded in 1967 by the outstanding choreographer Konstantin Boyarsky, combing the art of ice skating with classic Russian ballet.
Since 1995 the Saint Petersburg Ballet on Ice has been performing the most famous ballets by P. Tchaikovsky ("Sleeping Beauty", "Swan Lake", "Nutcracker") and ballets by S. Prokofiev ("Cinderella" and "Romeo and Juliet") around the globe.
Now they are returning to Arequipa. Under the artistic direction of Konstantin Rassadin, former outstanding USSR ballet dancer and choreographer, 34 excellent artists dressed in classical ballet costumes present one of the greatest classic ballets of all times on an ice rink installed on the stage of the theater.
The show will also be presented in Lima from May 14 - 17, 2019.
