Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet returns to Storyhouse in 2020 with a spectacular production of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, Swan Lake. Under the expert direction of Marina Medvetskaya, the acclaimed company combines classical training and technique with outstanding soloists to entertain audiences in breath-taking style. A full orchestra complements the purity of the dancing and traditional staging, to bring a taste of imperial Russia to the UK.

The story of Prince Siegfried and the Swan Princess is a tragic tale of love that triumphs over evil. The world’s most romantic ballet is magnificently brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s sublime and haunting score, performed by a live orchestra.

While hunting, Prince Siegfried catches sight of a stunning swan. As he draws his bow to shoot, the swan transforms into a beautiful woman, Odette. She tells him that she is a princess who has been cursed by an evil sorcerer to spend her days in the form of a swan and swim in a lake of tears. At night, she becomes human again. The spell can only be broken if a prince swears his eternal fidelity to her, otherwise, she and the other maidens must remain swans forever.
