Midweek matinée announced for St Petersburg Ballet Theatre’s Swan Lake

Following huge demand, Bord Gáis Energy Theatre is delighted to announce the addition of an extra matinée performance of the internationally acclaimed St Petersburg Ballet Theatre’s SWAN LAKE which plays Bord Gáis Energy Theatre from Tuesday 22 - Saturday 26 October. This additional performance has been added on Wednesday 23 October. Tickets from €31.00 for this extra matinée will go on sale this Friday 2 August at 9.00am.

Following two sold-out seasons at the London Coliseum, we look forward to welcoming the grace and beauty of this sensational, full-length classic production of SWAN LAKE to Dublin.

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. Led by prima ballerina Irina Kolesnikova, 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 200 performances every year.

Irina Kolesnikova has a wealth of leading credits to her name, having been prima ballerina at St Petersburg Ballet Theatre since the age of 21.  Following last year’s performances in London, the Sunday Express praised her “stunning classical technique, alone worth the price of the ticket” and declared that she has “the dramatic power of a Maggie Smith or Judy Dench.”

Kolesnikova will also be joined on stage by guest stars from Russia’s leading ballet company, the Bolshoi Ballet, including principal dancer Alexander Volchkov, who will play the role of Prince Siegfried at all performances, and Diana Koseryeva who shares the role of Odette/Odile with Irina Kolesnikova.

Tickets for this additional matinée go on sale this Friday 2 August at 9.00am. Tickets for all other performances are on sale now.

Prices include a €1.00 facilities fee per ticket. Telephone & Internet bookings are subject to a maximum s/c of €6.85 per ticket / Agents €3.30.
