Granted its “Royal” title in 1953 by the just-crowned Queen Elizabeth II, this legendary troupe is one of the world’s oldest premier dance companies and the longest continuously operating ballet company in North America. The company has performed to rave reviews at home, throughout the U.S. and around the world, and now makes its Festival debut with its critically acclaimed Swan Lake, which “cast its spell over the entire audience…you could have heard a proverbial pin drop” (Winnipeg Free Press). Named a New York Times “Critic’s Choice,” the troupe has long been a favorite of ballet fans. See this breathtaking performance with the Tchaikovsky score performed by the Virginia Symphony Orchestra!
