Swan Lake

With all the beauty for which Swan Lake is known, Northern Ballet brings audiences a modern take on this classic ballet.

Anthony sees his reflection in the mirror-like surface of the water. He is haunted by the shadows of the past and the tragic death of his brother. Confused by his feelings towards his two best friends he looks to the water for answers – in whatever form they take. This iconic tale of love and obsession is performed to Tchaikovsky's passionate and popular score, played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.
