What's On > Birmingham Royal Ballet - Swan Lake

Tue 22 - Sat 26 Jun 2010 (ARCHIVED LISTING)

With its exquisite ensembles, lyrical pas de deux and bravura solos, set to one of the world’s most achingly beautiful musical scores, it’s essential you secure your seats early for what is undoubtedly the most famous ballet of all time.

This production has thrilled audiences around the world, breathing new life into the choreography of the two great creators of Russian ballet, Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. Set against Philip Prowse's glittering black and gold scenery, it perfectly captures the oppressive melancholy world of the court, and the sinister mysteries of the enchanted forest and the moonlit lake. This timeless story of good, evil and the all-conquering power of love enchants the eyes, ears and heart.

'The most satisfying British production of Swan Lake'

'An unqualified triumph'
