Surely the greatest of all Romantic ballets, this captivating story tells of a beautiful woman transformed into a swan, and a heart-rending tribute to the power of love. A perfect synthesis of choreography and music Tchaikovsky’s ballet is now synonymous with ballet itself, inspiring generations of dancers and crossing over into popular culture.
Swan Lake has long been one of The Royal Ballet’s signature works and Anthony Dowell aims to return to an authentic version of the choreography created by the great Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov for the Mariinsky Theatre in 1895. Yolanda Sonnabend’s designs draw on the Russian Imperial Court of that period with an inspired blend of historical accuracy and gothic fantasy. The court scenes of Acts I and III have a dark glamour rooted in the opulent style of Carl Fabergé, while the famous lakeside ‘white’ acts are rich with mist, shadow and moonlight.
