The greatest romantic ballet of all time

A beautiful princess cursed by an evil sorcerer into a swan. A love affair that ends in heartbreak. A beguiling tale of good vs evil. Swan Lake, the most celebrated classical ballet of all time, features one of the greatest challenges for a ballerina - the dual role of the pure White Swan Odette and the scheming Black Swan Odile - and weaves a magnificent story of true love, betrayal and ultimate forgiveness.

Filled with transcendent choreography and emotionally charged imagery, John Meehan’s intelligent staging of Swan Lake fuses reality and fantasy with its dreamlike lake of swans and ethereal maidens. With glittering sets and costumes by celebrated British designer Peter Farmer and Hong Kong Sinfonietta performing Tchaikovsky’s iconic masterpiece score, Swan Lake will sweep you off your feet!
