Patrons of the Arts Caps Off 2016-17 Season with Russian Ballet
The Patrons of the Arts Society will round out its 2016-2017 season with a performance by the Russian National Ballet Theatre performing Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" at the Tinnin Fine Arts Center on Monday, April 24, at 7 p.m.
"We've been fortunate to be able to host some of the best Russian ballet companies in the world over the past few seasons, and it's always a breathtaking performance," said Tim Thompson, Director of the Tinnin Fine Arts Center. "It's one of the most popular shows with all ages, and it's the kind of show you'd have to spend $50 or more to see in St. Louis or Memphis."
The Russian National Ballet Theatre, famous for the talent, grace, and athleticism of its dancers, performs the hauntingly beautiful ballet Swan Lake. Through classic ballet choreography and Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's mesmerizing music, Swan Lake brings to life the timeless Russian folktale of cursed lovers, Prince Siegfried and Odette the Swan Queen, battling to break the spell cast by an evil sorcerer.
The Russian National Ballet Theatre brings together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies in an independent company within the framework of Russian classic ballet.
Tickets are $10 each and are available in limited amounts at the Poplar Bluff Chamber of Commerce, the college Student Accounts Office, and (if any remain) at the door. For more information on upcoming theater, music, and fine arts events at the Tinnin Center, visit trcc.edu/tinnin
