Swan Lake, a classic ballet composed by Tchaikovsky, performed by Kiev Ballet from Ukraine, was staged on Jan 7 at the Zhoushan Art Theatre in Zhoushan, East China's Zhejiang province. 

Kiev Ballet, established in 1867 in Kiev, capital of Ukraine, was one of the top three ballet troupes of the former Soviet Union, and is now one of Europe's largest art troupes. 

They presented an amazing audio and visual experience for the local residents with their beautiful movements and postures.

Swan Lake tells the story of Odette, a princess who was turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse and was finally rescued by a prince.
