Ballet Ireland presents
SWAN LAKE

Ballet Ireland is delighted to present a national tour of ‘Swan Lake’, one of the greatest love stories of classical ballet, to 26 theatres throughout Ireland.

This most famous of ballets, combines romantic themes, classical technique and ethereal imagery together with Tchaikovsky’s majestic score, to ensure this masterpiece’s immortality.
‘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 autumn 22 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.
“Perfectly formed and translucent production of the romantic classic”
“Clever touches with the choreography, performances and staging” The Irish Times
