The internationally acclaimed St Petersburg Ballet Theatre are set to make a welcome return to the London Coliseum this summer, with their full-length classic production of Swan Lake. The Company's 2015 season was a total sell out with over 25,000 seats sold. Due to huge demand, and additional 9 performances have been added to the season since announcement. The strictly limited 2018 season now takes place between Wednesday 22nd August and Sunday 2nd September 2018. Press night is Thursday 23rd August at 7.30pm

Founded in 1994, St Petersburg Ballet Theatre is renowned globally not just for its beautiful Vaganova trained dancers, but also for its stunning full-length productions. The company travels internationally performing classical masterpieces from its repertoire including Giselle, Don Quixote, The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty. The incredibly popular Company is in such demand that it gives over 200 performances every year.

Irina Kolesnikova, prima ballerina at St Petersburg Ballet Theatre since the age of 21, leads the Company that continues to have remarkable success around the world- from Sydney to Johannesburg, from Paris to Istanbul. Her last Odette/Odile in Swan Lake in London in 2015 was described by the Telegraph as Truly a thing of remarkable beauty and technically flawless.

Kolesnikova will be joined by guest stars including the Bolshoi Ballet principals Denis Rodkin and Alexander Volchkov . Both will dance the role of Prince Siegfried. The Mariinsky Theatre's principal dancer, Kimin Kim will also dance Siegfried. Also joining the season is Bolshoi principal dancer Yulia Stepanova, who will also dance the role of Odette/Odile.

As producer of the tour with decades of experience in presenting quality Russian ballet around the world, Andrew Guild said:

"We are delighted to announce a further nine performances of Swan Lake at London Coliseum. This release follows unprecedented demand for the original week of released some months ago. Without doubt, Swan Lake is the world's most famous classical ballet. And no one dances it as beautifully as The St Petersburg Ballet Theatre. The full length lavish production shows Russian classical ballet on a grand scale. It's the real thing. Gorgeous Tchaikovsky music, magnificent sets and costumes, superb Russian classical dancers and brilliant Guest Stars. I urge every ballet lover not to miss it. See it once, remember it forever."

Arguably the world's most loved ballet, Swan Lake tells the immortal classic love story of Prince Siegfried and Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse.

Swan Lake is undoubtedly a production everyone must experience at least once in their life.
