Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934. This Season The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. 

While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, 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. 

Duration: Approx 3 hours, including two intervals

A Ballet in four acts.

Choreography: Liam Scarlett after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov
Music: Pyotr Il'Yich Tchaikovsky

This is a live streaming/broadcast of the production, shown in cinemas around the UK. 'Encore' screenings have been recorded live and released for broadcast at a later date.
