Ballet Ireland is delighted to present a national tour of Swan Lake, the ballet which has captivated audiences for decades, and one of the greatest love stories of classical ballet.
This most famous of ballets combines romantic themes, classical technique and ethereal imagery, with Tchaikovsky’s majestic score, to ensure this masterpiece’s immortality.
Swan Lake tells the story of Odette, a beautiful princess, who is turned into a swan by day by evil magician Von Rothbart, only to regain her human form at night. Out hunting by the lakeside, Prince Siegfried encounters her and falls madly 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, has enthralled audiences since it premiered in 1877.
