Moscow Ballet’s Swan Lake returns to Tenerife


Update 27 March 2012:   The Moscow Ballet are bringing Swan Lake back to Tenerife next month, in what is now an highly anticipated annual visit. The company will perform at Teatro Guimerá in two performances on 7 April, at 6pm and 9.30pm. Tickets are available at the theatre box office priced at €35.

Update 13 July 2011:  Tickets cost €35 for the performances in Los Cristianos, and are available from the Centro Cultural in Los Cristianos between 5 and 8pm, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There is more information as well as links to the programme HERE (Swan Lake) and HERE (El Quijote).

Update 5 July: This ballet is being brought back to Tenerife after the success of the last performances. The new schedule, which includes a performance in the new auditorium in Los Cristianos, is

  • 21 July, 8.30pm, Teatro Guimerá, Santa Cruz
  • 22 July, 8.30pm. Teatro Guimerá, Santa Cruz

The same company will also be performing El Quijote“

  • 23 July, 8.30pm, Teatro Guimerá, Santa Cruz
  • 24 July, 7pm, Teatro Guimerá, Santa Cruz
  • 29 July, 8.30pm, Auditorio Infanta Leonor, Los Cristianos.

There is more information in TinerGuía, though it is not clear how to get tickets. I’m going to try the box office at the Los Cristianos auditorium itself.

Update 16 April 2011: The Moscow ballet is returning to perform Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty in Tenerife. The company was here last year, performing in La Laguna’s Teatro Leal and Adeje’s Magma Centre, as posted below, and this year it will be performing the ballets in the Teatro Guimerá in Santa Cruz.

Performances are on 23 and 24 April at 7pm, and as far as I can make out, Swan Lake will be danced on the 23rd and Sleeping Beauty on the 24th. Tickets are now available from the theatre box office, between Tuesday to Friday, 11am-1pm and 6-8pm, or by phone during the same periods to 902 364 603. They are priced at €20, €25, and €35.

Update 13 July 2010: The Moscow ballet is to perform Swan Lake in the Magma Centre the day before the Teatro Leal performance. There’s to be one performance on Friday 23 July, at 10pm. There’s a restricted number of tickets, priced at €35, which are available only through the Magma Centre box office, but can be reserved by calling 902 109 974.

Sometimes I wonder if they want people to know about these things! There’s been nothing in the press or cultural sites about this performance until I found it tonight on the Magma’s own site, whereupon I also find a 13 page info document! The Magma Centre site is HERE, and the info document HERE.

Original post June 19 2010: For anyone interested in ballet, or who likes Tchaikovsky, the Moscow Ballet is performing Swan Lake in the wonderful Teatro Leal in La Laguna, which is perhaps reason enough to go on its own! There will be two performances; Saturday 24 July at 9pm, and Sunday 25 July at 8pm. Tickets cost 35€, 30€, and 15€, and are on sale now, available only in the theatre box office between Mondays and Fridays, 10am to 2pm, and 5 to 8pm.  Tinerguía

Here is an idea of what the theatre is like:
