This November, the Tchaikovsky Perm State Ballet, together with the RTÉ NSO, return to Dublin with Swan Lake.
Following on from their highly successful run at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in December 2012, the Tchaikovsky Perm State Ballet are back from 20th to 22nd November with their production of one of the world’s favourite ballets, Swan Lake.
With Tchaikovsky’s magical score, Swan Lake combines classical dancing, romantic themes and wonderful sets and costumes to make it the world’s most popular ballet.
This world famous ballet premiered in 1877 and is now one of the most popular ballets of all time. Fashioned from Russian folk tales, it tells the story of doomed love between Prince Siegfried and Princess Odette who gets turned to a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse. The spell can only be broken if someone who has never loved her before swears an oath of undying love and promises to marry her.
One of the greatest ever love stories, reflecting the enduring confrontation of good versus evil, this really is an unrivalled version of a legendary classic and an evening not to be missed.
Performances take place on Friday 20th, Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of November at 7.30pm at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre and tickets are priced between €35 and €99.50 with group discounts available.
