Press shot for Swan Lake, showing dancers lined up and dressed as elegant swans

About

The Classical Ballet and Opera House presents Swan Lake – a timeless ballet with exquisite dancing.

One hundred and thirty-five years ago, audiences heard Swan Lake by the great composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for the very first time. From that moment on, the world of ballet would never be the same.

Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so strikingly that one can easily be mistaken for the other.

It is the 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 – 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 moonlit lake where majestic swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.

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

It promises to be a wonderful evening out, the memories of which you will cherish long after the final curtain falls.
