Russian National Ballet 2018 – Swan Lake

The Russian National Ballet will be back in the UK in autumn 2018 with their tour of Swan Lake.

With instantly recognizable music and a timeless story of good against evil, Swan Lake is the greatest of Romantic Ballets.

Featuring timeless score from incredible composer Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky,

Swan Lake is a certified Russian classic, replete with evocative music and beautiful dance. This Ballet has captured the imagination of many generations over the years and continues to attract audiences worldwide, full of mystery and romance.

The Premiere of Swan Lake transform the Classical Ballet into a Fairy-Tale.

The story of Swan Lake is woven around two girls, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so closely they can easily be mistaken for the other.

A compelling legend of tragic romance tells story of Odette, a Princess turned into a swan by an evil curse.

Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman he is instantly captivated – will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under ?

The twinned role of the pure White Swan and the scheming, duplicitous Black Swan tests the full range of a ballerina’s powers, particularly in the two great Pas de Deux.

Other highlights include the charming Dance of the Little Swans performed by a moonlit lake and sweeping ballroom waltzes in the splendour of the Royal Palace.

Swan Lake has become one of the most loved of all Ballets.
