Preview: Swan Lake at Sunderland Empire

Birmingham Royal Ballet glides into Sunderland

   Swan Lake
Sunderland Empire
Thursday 12 - Saturday 14 March 2020

Ballet’s greatest love story returns in Birmingham Royal Ballet’s lavish production of Swan Lake. This romantic fable of illfated passion, powerfully illuminated by Tchaikovsky’s legendary score played live by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, has bewitched audiences 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.

First Steps: Swan Lake
This hour-long, interactive show, specially adapted for children aged 3+, features ballet excerpts from Swan Lake, performed by Birmingham Royal Ballet's amazing dancers and orchestra, interspersed with scenes in which a storyteller introduces the children to the music and the leading characters, and shares some technical magic.

A feast of dance, music, costumes and lots of fun, this is a perfect introduction to ballet. Tickets:
