Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934.
In this new production, Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett creates additional choreography and brings fresh eyes to its staging in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.
Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.
