Russian State Ballet & Opera House return in 2019 with Swan Lake
Tuesday 26th November
Tyne Theatre & Opera House are thrilled to welcome the critically acclaimed Russian State Ballet & Opera House back to their stage this November with their superb production of Swan Lake.
The last time the touring company brought Swan Lake to the Tyne Theatre stage in November 2017, the show completely sold out and the theatre is expecting the return of Swan Lake in 2019 to be just as popular.
Tchaikovsky’s timeless ballet will be performed alongside a live orchestra with over 30 musicians.
135 years ago audiences heard Swan Lake by the great Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for the very first time. From that moment on, the world of ballet would never be the same.
Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so strikingly that one can easily be mistaken for the other.
It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, 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 young woman he is instantly captivated – will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under?
From the opulent splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where majestic swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.
Swan Lake captures, like no other ballet, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.
Director Joanne Johnson said: “It’s
an absolute pleasure to welcome the Russian State Ballet & Opera House back
to our stage each year. Every year we have seen their audiences grow to the
point where they now sell-out the theatre. It’s no surprise as their
performances are spellbinding, and Swan Lake is such an exquisite ballet that
can be enjoyed by all ages. We advise advance booking!”
