THE ROYAL BALLET
presents

SWAN LAKE
[Ballet in four acts]

Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.

Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934. This Season The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.

Choreography:
Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov
Additional choreography:
Liam Scarlett and Frederick Ashton
Music:
Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky

Run time: 3 hrs, including 2 intervals
