Ensemble

A Different 'Swan Lake'

Tchaikovsky in Rome
impresses GIUSEPPE PENNISI

 

In Rome, Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake arrived only in 1937, almost fifty year after its debut in Moscow, but since then Teatro dell'Opera has included this ballet in its program almost every season. For the Roman audience Swan Lake is almost a staple of the Christmas and New Year holiday period as well in the program at the open air Baths of Caracalla Summer Festival. Some three years ago, Teatro dell'Opera unveiled a new production to replace that seen almost every year from 2003 to 2011. (See Perfect Settings, 3 January 2014)...
