From the Royal Ballet

Swan Lake

Liam Scarlett’s glorious production of Swan Lake, new in 2018, returns for its first revival.  While remaining faithful to the Marius Petipa/Lev Ivanov text, Scarlett’s additional choreography and John Macfarlane’s magnificent designs breathe new life into what is arguably the best-known and most-loved classical ballet.  The entire Company shines in this eternal tale of doomed love, a masterpiece refreshed for a new generation.

Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet soars with its symphonic sweep and combines perfectly with exquisite choreography from the grand pas de deux of Prince Siegfried and Odile to the swans at the lakeside.

An intoxicating mix of spectacle and intimate passion, the overall effect is irresistible.
