Media Centre > What's On > Birmingham Royal Ballet - Swan Lake

 
Tue 2 - Sat 6 Oct 2012 (ARCHIVED LISTING)

 

A timeless story of good, evil and the all conquering power of love, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is without doubt the most famous of all classical ballets.

In mourning for his father, Prince Siegfried finds solace in hunting in the forest. He comes across a moonlit lake and is astonished to see one of the swans transform into a beautiful Princess. She is Odette, who, under the evil Von Rothbart’s spell, spends her days as a swan, returning to human form as night falls. Only the love of one who has never loved before can save her from this fate, but when the Prince is tricked into declaring himself toVon Rothbart’s daughter Odile,magically disguised as Odette, all hope seems lost. 

With its exquisite ensembles, lyrical pas de deux and bravura solos, set to one of the world’s most achingly beautiful scores, it’s essential you secure your seats early.
