Swan Lake

01/12/2019

Ballet Ireland is delighted to present this most famous of ballets, which combines romantic themes, classical technique and ethereal imagery together with Tchaikovsky’s majestic score.

Swan Lake tells the story of Odette, a beautiful princess, who by day is turned into a swan by evil magician Von Rothbart, only to regain her human form at night. Out hunting by the Lakeside, Prince Siegfried encounters her and falls in love with her. But will he be able to break Von Rothbart’s spell…?

This enduring story of love and tragedy, good and evil, and has enthralled audiences since it premiered in 1877. This autumn 25 leading professional dancers from Ireland and abroad will perform in this breath-taking production which was loved by audiences and critics when last produced by Ballet Ireland.
