Swan Lake

The greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s
haunting and unforgettable score. From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to
the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic
romance has it all. From Odile, the temptress in black tulle as she seduces the Prince by
spinning with captivating precision to the spellbound purity of the swan queen, Odette as she flutters with emotional intensity, the dual role of Odette/Odile is one of ballet’s most
unmissable technical challenges.

Every toy has a story, especially in this charming comedy of errors, a witty
combination of antics and abracadabra, set in a doll maker’s workshop. This lighthearted tale of mistaken identity and confused lovers is perfect for first-time ballet goers, families and everyone in between.

The most poignant of all classical ballets is filled with dramatic passion in a chilling and heart-rending tale of love, treachery and forgiveness from beyond the grave. From the visual splendour of the rustic villagers happily gathering the harvest at the start of the story to the eerie moonlit forest haunted by beautifully drifting spirits, this production is unforgettable.

The Nutcracker

This most famous of fantasy ballets for all the family begins as night falls on Christmas Eve. As snowflakes fall outside, the warm glow of the open fire sends flickering shadows across the boughs of the Christmas tree and all the presents beneath. When midnight strikes we are swept away to a fairy-tale world where nothing is quite as it seems, toy dolls spring to life, the Mouse-king and his mouse-army battle with the Nutcracker Prince and we travel through the Land of Snow to an enchanted place where the magic really begins…
