Swan Lake is a love story that mixes magic, tragedy, and romance into four acts. It features Prince Siegfried and a lovely swan princess named Odette.

Odette spends her days as a swan swimming on a lake of tears and her nights in her beautiful human form, whilst under the spell of a sorcerer.

The romantic fable is powerfully illuminated by Tchaikovsky’s legendary score played live by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia has 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.

It is at The Lowry Theatre from 4th March till the 7th March.
