The Royal Ballet - Swan LakeCert TBC

The Royal Ballet - Swan Lake

Anthony Dowell's opulent production of the greatest of all romantic ballets returns to the Royal Opera House. Tchaikovsky's first ballet score was slow to capture the public imagination. But today this magical tale of a beautiful woman transformed into a swan ranks as one of the world's most popular ballets. It has crossed over into popular culture and been radically reinterpreted many times. From the earliest days of the Vic-Wells Ballet, it has also been one of The Royal Ballet's signature works. For his 1987 production, Anthony Dowell went back to the choreography originally created by the great Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov for the Mariinsky Theatre in 1895. Yolanda Sonnabend's inspired designs draw on the Russian Imperial Court of the period, blending historical accuracy and gothic fantasy. The magical setting is further evoked by the Carl Faberge-inspired glamour of the court scenes in Acts I and III, and the misty, moonlit beauty of the lakeside 'white' acts.View more

Anthony Dowell's opulent production of the greatest of all romantic ballets returns to the Royal Opera House. Tchaikovsky's first ballet score was slow to capture the public imagination. But today this magical tale of a beautiful woman transformed into a swan ranks as one of the world's most popular ballets.

For his 1987 production, Anthony Dowell went back to the choreography originally created by the great Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov for the Mariinsky Theatre in 1895. Yolanda Sonnabend's inspired designs draw on the Russian Imperial Court of the period, blending historical accuracy and gothic fantasy. The magical setting is further evoked by the Carl Faberge-inspired glamour of the court scenes in Acts I and III, and the misty, moonlit beauty of the lakeside 'white' acts.View more

Anthony Dowell's opulent production of the greatest of all romantic ballets returns to the Royal Opera House. Tchaikovsky's first ballet score was slow to capture the public imagination.

But today this magical tale of a beautiful woman transformed into a swan ranks as one of the world's most popular ballets. It has crossed over into popular culture and been radically reinterpreted many times. From the earliest days of the Vic-Wells Ballet, it has also been one of The Royal Ballet's signature works. For his 1987 production, Anthony Dowell went back to the choreography originally created by the great Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov for the Mariinsky Theatre in 1895. Yolanda Sonnabend's inspired designs draw on the Russian Imperial Court of the period, blending historical accuracy and gothic fantasy. The magical setting is further evoked by the Carl Faberge-inspired glamour of the court scenes in Acts I and III, and the misty, moonlit beauty of the lakeside 'white' acts.View more

The Royal Ballet - Swan Lake

Anthony Dowell's opulent production of the greatest of all romantic ballets returns to the Royal Opera House. Tchaikovsky's first ballet score was slow to capture the public imagination. But today this magical tale of a beautiful woman transformed into a swan ranks as one of the world's most popular ballets.

Yolanda Sonnabend's inspired designs draw on the Russian Imperial Court of the period, blending historical accuracy and gothic fantasy.

The Royal Ballet - Swan Lake

Anthony Dowell's opulent production of the greatest of all romantic ballets returns to the Royal Opera House. Tchaikovsky's first ballet score was slow to capture the public imagination. But today this magical tale of a beautiful woman transformed into a swan ranks as one of the world's most popular ballets.

Yolanda Sonnabend's inspired designs draw on the Russian Imperial Court of the period, blending historical accuracy and gothic fantasy.

The productive partnership between playwright and poet Bertolt Brecht and composer Kurt Weill yielded this blistering political satire, which received its Leipzig premiere in 1930. Weill's eclectic, jazz-infused score was heavily influenced by ragtime music. Its best-known melody, 'Alabama Song', has been kept alive in popular culture through cover versions by such artists as Ute Lemper, The Doors and David Bowie. Sung in English, this first Royal Opera staging is by Associate Director of Opera John Fulljames. It features a superb cast as the dubious denizens of the fictional pleasure city of Mahagonny. Kurt Streit plays the wild lumberjack Jimmy, with Christine Rice as his sweetheart Jenny. Anne Sofie von Otter returns to The Royal Opera as the cunning Leokadja Begbick.

Anthony Dowell's opulent production of the greatest of all romantic ballets returns to the Royal Opera House. Tchaikovsky's first ballet score was slow to capture the public imagination.

The Royal Ballet - Swan Lake

Anthony Dowell's opulent production of the greatest of all romantic ballets returns to the Royal Opera House. Tchaikovsky's first ballet score was slow to capture the public imagination. But today this magical tale of a beautiful woman transformed into a swan ranks as one of the world's most popular ballets.

For his 1987 production, Anthony Dowell went back to the choreography originally created by the great Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov for the Mariinsky Theatre in 1895. Yolanda Sonnabend's inspired designs draw on the Russian Imperial Court of the period, blending historical accuracy and gothic fantasy. The magical setting is further evoked by the Carl Faberge-inspired glamour of the court scenes in Acts I and III, and the misty, moonlit beauty of the lakeside 'white' acts.View more
