About the event

Swan Lake – a timeless ballet with exquisite dancing

 

Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians

 

After last year’s successful tour of the Nutcracker, Imperial Classical Ballet® (formerly Classical Ballet & Opera House) returns this year to the New Theatre Royal to enchant you with the delightful production of Swan Lake.

 

Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so strikingly that one can easily be mistaken for the other.

Swan Lake 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 opulent splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where majestic swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.

 

Swan Lake captures, like no other ballet, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.

 

A wonderful evening out, the memories of which you will cherish long after the final curtain falls!
