Swan Lake, one of the most famous ballets ever performed, premiered in 1877 at the Bolshoi theater, and features music composed by Tchaikovsky and choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during a transitional period in the late 1980s, when many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union's ballet institutions were starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet but to invigorating new traditions from around the world. In 1994, the legendary Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko was selected by Presidential decree to assume the first permanent artistic directorship of the company. Ms. Radchenko is the founder of the Russian National Ballet Theatre, and she has focused the Company on upholding the grand national tradition of the major Russian ballet works and developing new talents throughout Russia. Today, the Russian National Ballet Theatre is its own institution, with over 50 dancers of singular instruction and vast experience.
