THE ROYAL BALLET
presents

SWAN LAKE

[Approximately 3 hours
Ballet in 4 acts, with 2 intervals]

One of the best-loved of classical ballets, set to a sublime score by Tchaikovsky, Swan Lake will enchant audiences, particularly with choreography by the award-winning Liam Scarlett. The ballet follows the story of Prince Siegfried who one night encounters a flock of swans, one of whom reveals herself to be a beautiful woman called Odette. Odette is being held under a spell by the evil Von Rothbart, who later disguises his daughter Odile as Odette to trick Prince Siegfried into breaking his vow of love. But Siegfried is determined to save Odette, whatever the cost.

Liam Scarlett has created a new production, which remains faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov original but will also offer a fresh perspective on this much-loved classical ballet. Scarlett will work in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.

Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov
