The Royal Ballet Live presents Swan Lake - Classical ballet's most powerful tale of love, treachery and forgiveness

Tickets

Music by Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky, Choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov

Out hunting, Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans. One among them transforms into the beautiful human Odette and he is immediately enamoured. But Odette is bound by a spell which keeps her captive as a swan during the day. Can Siegfried free her?

Tchaikovsky’s sensational score combines with the evocative imagination of choreographer Liam Scarlett and designer John Macfarlane to heighten the dramatic pathos of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov’s quintessential ballet classic. Swan Lake remains to this day one of the best-loved works in the classical ballet canon.

Running time 3 hours and 20 minutes including two intervals
