Swan Lake's tragic and dramatic romance with exquisite dancing
Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky
Featuring live orchestra with over 30 musicians
One hundred and thirty-five years ago audiences heard the Swan Lake music by the great Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for the very first time. From this moment on, the world of ballet would never be the same again.
Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so closely one can easily be mistaken for the other.
It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is 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 young woman he is instantly captivated - will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under?
From the impressive splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.
Swan Lake captures, like no other, the full range of human emotions from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.
"This was an absolutely sumptuous ballet with the most gorgeous sets and costumes I have seen in years." The Central Fife Times.
