It was a very special Swan Lake performed within the 43rd May Opera Evenings in Skopje. For the first time Macedonians invited the principals with the Bolshoi to dance at the stage of their Opera and Ballet Theater.

The evening was a great success due to Nina Kaptsova and Artem Ovcharenko who brought the house down. The ballet was choreographed by Victor Yaremenko (Ukraine) and Gjorgje Pavlovic (Serbia) conducted the orchestra.
