About

The Russian State Ballet and Opera House Presents

Swan Lake – a timeless ballet with exquisite dancing

Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky

Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians

‘This was an absolute sumptuous ballet with the most gorgeous sets and costumes I have seen in years.’ The Central Fife Times.

After sell-out performances last year, the Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for its annual UK tour with spellbinding, lavish, full-production touring ballet. This year they are bringing to you the Mariisky State Ballet Theatre from central Russia.

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 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.
