Cork City Ballet’s new Swan Lake, at Cork Opera House from November 24–27, will star Sofia Gumerova and Nikita Shcheglov from the Maryinsky Ballet.
Shcheglov is a regular guest with the company, but this will be Gumerova’s first visit to Ireland. The new production, choreographed by Alan Foley and Yuri Demakov, draws on the traditional Petipa/Ivanov choreography, but also includes a version of the big swans’ dance performed by men.
