If you’ve never experienced the mesmerising magic of a ballet before, then Swan Lake is definitely the one to see at St David’s Hall!
This captivating ballet comes to the National Concert Hall of Wales for seven performances from Thursday 29 December – Monday 2 January at 2pm, 5.30pm and 7pm (excluding Sunday 1 January).
Tchaikovsky originally wrote this beautiful ballet to entertain his nieces during the summer of 1871. Yet, it was only when the Imperial Theatre in Moscow commissioned a full-length ballet that he remembered he had already started one. Swan Lake went on to become perhaps the most desired performance to see live, and the greatest romantic ballet of all time.
The dual role of the white and black swans is one of ballet’s most unmissable technical challenges. Some say it’s the ‘Holy Grail’ for ballerinas, and to be cast as the two main characters is one of the highest honours for a ballet dancer; not least because it’s so difficult to perform!
Accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s instantly recognisable score, this magical tale tells the story of the beautiful princess Odette, who is turned into a swan by a sorcerer’s evil curse. Only love can reverse the spell. Will Odette find her handsome prince?
The majesty of the ballroom and the moonlit scene where the swans glide in perfect formation are truly the most sensational sights in ballet. Experience the breathtaking beauty of Swan Lake at St David’s Hall.
