About Swan Lake by the Russian State Ballet of Siberia
The greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score.
From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.
From Odile, the temptress in black tulle as she seduces the Prince by spinning with captivating precision to the spellbound purity of the swan queen, Odette as she flutters with emotional intensity, the dual role of Odette/Odile is one of ballet’s most unmissable technical challenges.
The critics said about Swan Lake by the Russian State Ballet of Siberia, “The production is a triumph”
Duration: 2 hours 20 minutes including interval

Touring across the UK with a full company of dancers as well as highly skilled musicians is always exciting, for me, it is very special to have the power of a symphony orchestra bringing the choreography to life on stage.” —Sergei Bobrov
