One of the greatest love stories ever told, Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake is without doubt the most famous ballet of all time.
'An unqualified triumph.' Financial Times
'The most satisfying British production of Swan Lake.' The Times
With its exquisite ensembles, lyrical pas de deux and bravura solos, all set to one of the world’s most achingly beautiful scores; it is a timeless story of good, evil and the all conquering power of love.
In mourning for his father, Prince Siegfried takes solace hunting in the forest. With his father dead he will be compelled to choose a bride the next day. He comes across a moonlit lake and is astonished to see one of the swans transform into a beautiful Princess. She is Odette, who, under the evil Von Rothbart’s spell, spends her days as a swan, returning to human form as night falls. Only the love of one who has never loved before can save her from this fate but when the Prince is tricked into declaring himself to Von Rothbart’s daughter Odile, magically disguised as Odette, all hope seems lost…
