Falling under the spell of Swan Lake
After sell- out performances of Nutcracker last year, Russian National Ballet is proud to present a spectacular new production of Swan Lake, one of Tchaikovsky’s most celebrated works.
And Swan Lake Ballet will be performed in Ayr, Gaiety on Monday, October 15 and Tuesday, October 16 at 7.30pm.
Swan Lake features some of ballet’s most memorable music and breath- taking dance.
This vibrant classical ballet is a family- orientated production with mesmerising costumes and fairytale magic where goodness triumphs over evil.
The familiar story tells of a princess who is turned into a swan by an evil curse.
Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman he is instantly captivated – but will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under?
Highlights of the ballet include the charming Dance of the Little Swans performed on the shores of a moonlit lake.
This contrasts with sweeping ballroom waltzes set in the opulent splendour of the Royal Palace.
Swan Lake is full of mystery and romance and has captured the imagination of generations over the years and continues to attract worldwide audiences, young and old.
