One of the best-loved of classical ballets, set to a sublime score by Tchaikovsky, The Royal Ballet’s Swan Lake will enchant audiences, particularly with choreography by the award-winning Liam Scarlett, working in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane. The ballet, recorded live in 2018, follows the story of Prince Siegfried (Vadim Muntagirov) who one night encounters a flock of swans, one of whom reveals herself to be a beautiful woman called Odette (Marianela Nuñez). Odette is being held under a spell by the evil Von Rothbart, who later disguises his daughter Odile as Odette to trick Prince Siegfried into breaking his vow of love. But Siegfried is determined to save Odette, whatever the cost. Liam Scarlett has created a new production, which remains faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov original but also offers a fresh perspective on this new production from The Royal Ballet.
