________________________________________________________________________Ballet's greatest love story returns in Birmingham Royal Ballet's lavish production. This romantic fable of ill-fated passion, powerfully illuminated by Tchaikovsky's legendary score, has bewitched viewers for generations.
By a moonlit lake, a grieving prince witnesses the transformation of a swan into a beautiful princess. Compelled by an evil spell to spend her days in the form of a bird, she can only be saved by the power of love.
Filled with exquisite ensembles, lyrical pas de deux, and bravura solos, this Swan Lake is atmospheric, romantic, and beautiful - an unforgettable experience.
Look out for our special children's introduction to the ballet, First Steps: a child's Swan Lake in Salford, Birmingham, Plymouth, Cardiff and Southampton. Click here for more information.
