Swan Lake – A Compelling Legend of Tragic Romance

Dreams come true this year with a tour of this festive family favourite ballet.

Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky

Featuring an impressive cast, and accompanied by a large live Orchestra with over 30 musicians

Directed and choreographed by former Bolshoi Ballet Soloist, Konstantin Uralsky, The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is coming to the UK in Autumn 2018.
Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so closely that one can easily be mistaken for the other. It is a 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 – but will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under? From the opulent splendour of the palace ballroom to the mystical moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, Swan Lake has it all and is the perhaps the most perfect romantic ballet of all time,

Swan Lake captures, like no other, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.

The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is a showcase for Russian cultural traditions, bringing as they do the passion and vibrancy of the Russian character to this well-known ballet. The company has built an international reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality which never fail to delight audiences.

Producer Alexej Ignatow, of Amande Concerts Ltd, who has co-ordinated the UK tour, said: “We are constantly on the lookout for new challenges, to ensure that our opera and ballet audiences get a chance to experience a wide spectrum of various classic pieces.

“With extensive national tours that get our productions seen the length and breadth of the country, we are able to offer national audiences in various theatres an unforgettable experience at a fraction of the price of the major opera houses, all without sacrificing quality. So, continuing to work with theatres all over the UK it is very close to my heart. We aim to deliver top quality productions every year and make new converts wherever we go”.
