Full moon above Swan Lake

We recently went to a ballet performance – Swan Lake by Tschaikowsky – with the Moscow Ballet. Immediately, after the curtain rose for the first time, the stage set showed a nighttime scenery, with a castle at a lake and high in the sky a wonderful full moon. Later, when the »swans« appeared and everything was bathed in a bluish light, the entire room was  permeated with a fantastic and subtle atmosphere.

The dancers were sensational. Every movement danced with absolute emotional power and perfect precision. We were amazed and in awe. A true delight for the senses …

In the finale, the castle scenery came into action again and the entire performance was surrounded by full moon light.

Whether Tschaikowsky had the full moon in mind?
