The State Ballet Theatre of Russia brings 65 internationally acclaimed dancers from Voronezh to the Genesee Theatre for a classic rendition of Swan Lake. Complemented by Tchaikovsky’s iconic score, the star-studded cast unleashes a traditionally Russian take on the story of Prince Siegfried and Odette, a beautiful woman transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer who needs feathers for his endless pillow fights. Orchestra and lower-balcony seats grant unobstructed views of en pointe dancers sparkling in black and white costumes across a stage recently expanded to double its original size. As they make their way to their seats, visitors can marvel at the Genesee’s hyper-accurate restoration, with every chandelier crystal, ornate molding, and coat-check flapper refurbished in line with the theater’s original 1920s movie-palace glory.

Genesee Theatre

Genesee Theatre began its life with a sellout. Opening its doors on Christmas Day, 1927, it welcomed audiences to four sold-out movie screenings, but those flickering stories weren't the only attraction. A $25,000 pipe organ—and that's in old-timey dollars—immediately caught the eye, while Italian marble, a stunning chandelier, and the building's Spanish Renaissance–style architecture dazzled.

Over the years, many changes occurred, the glamorous quotient rising or dipping with the times and the theater closing altogether in 1989. But when it reopened again in 2004, it was back in full force. Antique chandeliers and fixtures of the period had been brought in from around the country, the luxe carpet had been recreated from a 1927 photograph, and all the dust bunnies had been sent packing with generous severance packages. Yet not all the updates were of the old-fashioned sort: the stage was doubled in size, and cutting-edge technology was brought in to give the theatre's high-voltage visitors, from comedians to musicians, the star treatment.
