Set to Tchaikovsky’s infamous score, Swan Lake tells the now famous love story of Prince Siegfried and the Swan Queen Odette. This timeless story of good against evil is the greatest of all romantic ballets. The twinned roles of the pure White Swan and the scheming Black Swan tests the full range of a ballerina’s powers, particularly in the two great pas de deux of Acts II and III. Other highlights include the charming Dance of the Little Swans performed by a moonlit lake and sweeping ballroom waltzes in the splendour of the royal palace. The beautiful Peter Wright production is classical ballet at its most approachable and visually entrancing with something for everyone to enjoy.
The ballet was recorded live in March, 2015 and will be shown digitally. The total running time is 175 minutes including two 20 minute intermissions.
