Swan Lake – Royal Ballet (Live)

DATE:
Tue 12 June

TIME:
7:15PM

PRICE:
£17, £10 for under 15s

A new production of this Royal Ballet classic with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.

Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.  The ballet’s success is secured by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky’s score and the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa’s royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov.
