      • Dauer : 4h30

      Swan Lake

      Composer: Peter Tchaikovsky

      Orchestra: Congress Orchestra

      Music: Pyotr Tchaikovsky

      Libretto: Vladimir Begichev, Vasily Geltzer

      Choreography: Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov (1895)

      Revised choreography and artistic direction: Konstantin Sergeyev (1950)

      Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes (ballet with two breaks)

      Swan Lake is a ballet by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, composed between 1875 and 1876 and fashioned from Russian folk tales. It tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. The choreographer of the original production was Julius Reisinger. The ballet received its premiere in 1877, at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow as The Lake of the Swans. Although it is presented in many different versions, most ballet companies base their staging both choreographically and musically on the 1895 revival of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, first staged for the Imperial Ballet on 15 January 1895, at the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg.

      The ballet takes place at Mikhailovsky Theatre, one of Russia's oldest opera and ballet houses. This monument was built by Alexander Brullov in 1833 by decree of Tsar Nicholas I. It is situated in a historical building on the Arts Square in St. Petersburg. This name had been given in celebration of Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich of Russia. At the beginning, the theater housed the French troops who received contracts from two to five years on average. When the Bolsheviks took power, the French company was forced to leave Russia and, in 1917 the Mikhailovsky Theatre. After that the theater had to close. It reopened as an opera theatre on March 6, 1918. From 1989 to 2007 the theatre bore the name of Modest Mussorgsky, subsequently returned to its original name: the Mikhailovsky Theatre.

    9. St Isaac & Our Savior on the Spilled Blood

      • Hafen : St. Petersburg
      • Dauer : 3h30

      Your visit will start by a short drive along the Neva River, till the well-known Isaac's Cathedral. The church on St Isaac's Square was ordered by Tsar Alexander I, to replace an earlier structure. A specially appointed commission examined several designs, including that of the French-born architect Auguste de Montferrand (1786-1858). The cathedral took 40 years to construct, under Montferrand's direction, from 1818 to 1858. Under the Soviet government, the building was abandoned, then turned into a museum of atheism. The dove sculpture was removed, and replaced by a Foucault pendulum. During World War II, the dome was painted over in grey to avoid attracting attention from enemy aircraft. With the fall of communism, the museum was removed and regular worship activity has resumed in the cathedral, but only in the left-hand side chapel.

      After this great visit, you will be driven to the Church of the Saviour on the Spilled Blood. It is also variously called the Church on Spilt Blood and the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ its official name. The name refers to the blood of the assassinated Alexander II of Russia, who was mortally wounded on that site on 13 March 1881. Construction began in 1883 under Alexander III, as a memorial to his father. Work progressed slowly and was finally completed during the reign of Nicholas II in 1907.

      The church is prominently situated along the Griboedov Canal. Architecturally, the cathedral differs from Saint Petersburg's other structures; the Saviour on Blood harks back to medieval Russian architecture in the spirit of romantic nationalism. It intentionally resembles the 17th-century Yaroslavl churches and the celebrated Saint-Basil's Cathedral in Moscow. The Church contains over 7,500 square metres of mosaics - according to its restorers, more than any other church in the world.

      At the end of your visit, you will have time at leisure to stroll along the Neva River or to do some shopping in the heart of the nearby flea market before returning to the ship.

      • This tour involves high steps to enter the cathedral.

    10. Catherine & Pavlovsk Palaces

      • Hafen : St. Petersburg
      • Dauer : 8h15

      Drive to Tsarskoye Selo (“Royal Village”) which was founded in the 18th century as the summer residence of the Russian tsars. In 1937, its name was changed to “Pushkin” to commemorate the centenary of the death of the great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin, who had studied in the Imperial Lyceum there.

      Arrive in Pushkin and visit the Catherine Palace, designed by architect Rastrelli. The stunning 
      300-metre long baroque facade is adorned with a profusion of atlantes, columns, pilasters and ornamental window framings. Visit the Amber room, the ballroom and the famous Green dining room. Next, walk through Pavlovsk park and visit the private garden.

      A short drive will bring you to Pavlovsk, the former summer royal residence of Emperor Paul I, Catherine's only son. Before starting your visit to Pavlovsk, enjoy a Russian tea party served in the Pavlovsk Palace Restaurant.

      The history of Pavlovsk began in 1777 when Catherine the Great, overjoyed at the birth of her first grandson Alexander, presented the vast hunting grounds to her son Paul and his wife Maria. The construction of the Palace was entrusted to Catherine's favourite architect, Charles Cameron, who was to design the Palace and the grounds. Pavlovsk remained a residence of the Romanov imperial family until 1915. Pavlovsk is a place that has retained an atmosphere of warm intimacy and sumptuous cosiness, which still enchants us.

      The Pavlovsk Park created by Pietro Gonzaga is one of the largest parks in Europe. Set within 1800 acres (728 ha) of birch and firs, meadows and wild flowers, it is renowned for the natural scenic beauty of the landscape, enhanced by exquisite samples of garden sculpture and architecture.
