The Royal Opera House presents
A ballet in four acts choreographed by Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa
Surely the greatest of all the romantic ballads, Swan Lake is a perfect synthesis of choreography and music. Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score is now synonymous with ballet itself having inspired generations of dancers and crossing over into popular culture.
From the earliest days of the Vic-Wells ballet, Swan Lake has been one of the Royal Ballets signature works. In creating this production, Anthony Dowell aimed to return to an authentic version of the choreography created by the great Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov for the Mariinsky theatre in 1895. The court scenes of Act l and lll have a dark glamour rooted in the opulent style of Carl Faberge, while the famous lakeside ‘white’ acts are rich in mist, shadow and moonlight.
Recorded at The Royal Opera House and shown on our cinema screen.
