Tomorrow evening Yulia Stepanova and Artem Ovcharenko will dance the leads in "Swan Lake" at the Seoul Arts Center.
The piece is based on the choreograph of Yuri Grigorovich, who served as the artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet for 32 years, from 1964 to 1995, and is the original version of the piece that the Korean National Ballet brings to the stage every year. The first performance in Seoul will be led by the company’s star principal dancers Yulia Stepanova and Artem Ovcharenko.
The last time the Bolshoi Ballet performed for the Korean audience was 13 years ago. Back then in 2005, the company brought "Giselle" and "Spartacus".
