Broadcast from the Royal Opera House (live)
This classic fairytale represents the clash between good and evil, and the attempt of love to conquer all. The magic of the lakes, forests and palaces is brought to life by the glittering designs of John Macfarlane and Tchaikovsky’s sublime score. The Royal Ballet’s sumptuous production of Swan Lake makes a welcome return to the Royal Opera House stage after its 2020 revival was interrupted by the closure of theatres due to the coronavirus pandemic. This classic of the repertory is a demonstration of the late choreographer Liam Scarlett’s abiding love of classicism and innate musicality, which are hallmarks of this production.
