The masterpiece ballet is presented in three acts and follows the original storyline with the happy ending which was decreed by Soviet rule in the 1930's during the reign of then Russian Leader Stalin. Subtle revisions and variations have been introduced by Gediminas Taranda, Artistic Director of the Imperial Russian Ballet Company.

Swan Lake crosses the world of magic and mystical creatures with that of the real world. It is a story where the virtues of love and forgiveness in the end conquer evil and betrayal.

The Imperial Russian Ballet Company was formed in 1994, headed by the Bolshoi Theatre soloist Gediminas Taranda. The Imperial Russian Ballet Company comprises 40 dancers from the major ballet schools of Russia: Moscow, Kiev and Perm. Actively combining forces with the Imperial Russian Ballet Company are world renowned dancers and ballet stars including Patrick Dupond (Opera de Paris), Farukh Ruzimatov, Yulia Makhalina and Diana Vishneva (Mariinsky Theatre), Nikolai Tsiskaridze, Lyudmila Semenyaka and Nadezhda Pavlova (The Bolshoi Theatre), Vladimir Malakhov, Julia Kent(American Ballet Theatre) and Tamie Kusakari (Japan).

The name of the company recognizes the grand masters of the Russian Classical Ballet School and the Imperial Family who made such an enormous contribution to the development of Russian culture. This included the creation of the Bolshoi and Mariinsky Theatres.

The prime choreographic style adopted by the Company is a classical one, however, they also indulge in modern dance and choreographic novelties.

The versatility of The Imperial Russian Ballet Company is demonstrated by the fact they are able to tour the world presenting both full length traditional ballets and divertissements, as well as finding time to perform seasons at the Novaya Opera Theatre in Moscow.
