BRB’s treasured production of the world’s best-loved ballet.

The greatest of all romantic ballets returns in ‘one of the world’s finest productions’(The Observer). Birmingham Royal Ballet revives Peter Wright and Galina Samsova’s glorious journey into Swan Lake – with the Royal Ballet Sinfonia performing Tchaikovsky’s superb music live alongside BRB’s spectacular dancers.

Prince Siegfried is out hunting one night when he happens upon a flock of graceful swans. When one of them turns into a beautiful woman named Odette, the Prince is utterly smitten – but Odette explains that she’s fallen under an evil spell cast by the dreaded Rothbart, which keeps her in swan form from dawn to dusk. Can Siegfried break the spell and smooth the path of true love? Find out in this exquisite production of a true ballet classic.
