Russian State Ballet and Opera House returns to Sheffield City Hall on Sunday 24 October 2021 to present the timeless ballet of Swan Lake with a vibrant and enchanting full touring ballet production featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians.
With its instantly recognizable music and a timeless story of good versus evil, Swan Lake is the greatest of romantic ballets, featuring an evocative score from the prolific composer Tchaikovsky.
Swan Lake is a Russian classic, replete with haunting music and exquisite dance. This ballet has captured the imagination of many generations. Its fairy-tale mystery and romance continues to fascinate audiences worldwide.
Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so closely one can easily be mistaken for the other.
It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is turned into a swan by an evil curse.
Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman he is instantly captivated − will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under?
The twinned roles of the pure White Swan and the scheming, duplicitous Black Swan tests the full range of a ballerina’s powers, particularly in the two great pas de deux.
Other much-loved highlights include the charming Dance of the Little Swans, performed by a moonlit lake, as well as sweeping ballroom waltzes in the splendour of the Royal Palace.
Swan Lake has become one of the most loved of all ballets.
Tickets for Swan Lake at the Sheffield City Hall on Sunday 24 October 2021 go on sale Friday 12 February 10am from .
