Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky’s legendary classic ‘Swan Lake’, a favourite among ballet lovers, is in town for a three-day event from Thursday. And the city has already displayed its interest, as was evident from Nazrul Mancha declaring the first show ‘housefull’ on Thursday evening.Choreographed by Vladimir Troschenko and directed by Anatgioly Kazatsky, both veteran ballet artists, the current edition of the ballet has been facilitated by Navrasa Duendo, an Indian house that facilitates art and culture promotion. Before coming to Kolkata, the troupe performed in Mumbai, Delhi and Ahmedabad. Tchaikovsky was the leading exponent of 19th Century Romanticism in its characteristically Russian mould, which owed much to the French, Italian, and German traditions. The music was structured in broad gestures and treated in the manner of a symphony. Initially, Tchaikovsky’s innovations were deemed too complex to find initial acceptance and success. It took a lot of critical understanding over the years to appreciate the complex musical composition before becoming a favourite. Created in 1875-76, ‘Swan Lake’ has it all — from a bewitched queen, a doomed prince and cunning villains.
