Fall­ing un­der the spell of Swan Lake

Ayrshire Post - - The Ticket -

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.
