Review: Wichita Grand Opera’s presentation of ‘Swan Lake’ spectacular

Following in the tradition of the great opera companies of Europe, the Wichita Grand Opera on Wednesday acknowledged the long-standing connection between opera and ballet: it presented a single, spectacular performance of the ballet “Swan Lake” (with music by Tchaikovsky and choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov) produced by the Russian National Ballet Theatre. Based on the fact that the house was packed, it is sad that there was only one performance, because this was Russian ballet as only the Russians can perform it.
