Ballet Ireland present Swan Lake

Is there any ballet more beloved and enduring than Swan Lake? Arguably the most romantic of classical ballets with its beautiful swan maidens and tragic lovers Odette and Prince Seigfried, you really can’t say you’ve experienced ballet properly if you haven’t seen Swan Lake.

This is the story of Odette, a beautiful princess, who by day is turned into a swan by evil magician Von Rothbart, only to regain her human form at night. Out hunting by the Lakeside, Prince Siegfried encounters her and falls in love with her. But will he be able to break Von Rothbart’s spell…?

This majestic story of love and tragedy, good and evil has enthralled audiences since it premiered in 1877.

This autumn our national ballet will present 25 leading professional dancers from Ireland and abroad in this breath-taking production which was loved by audiences and critics when last produced by Ballet Ireland and we are thrilled to have it back this November.

Swan Lake will always be very dear to An Grianán as it was Ballet Ireland’s first ever performance with us way back in 2001.
