Description

ABOUT PERFORMANCE

Will prince Siegfried choose love and stay true to his innocent white swan girl? Or will he forget Odette and follow the requirements of his noble position? After all, foreign princesses can be so charming! It is difficult for him to resist the bewitching black swan Odile supported by the fiendish wizard Rothbart. Rather than a lovestory, this famed fairy tale is a fateful journey of the soul. 

Cranko stayed true to the traditional version yet incorporated his typical dramatic talent and original perspective. Moreover, the National Theatre plays an important role in the history of this renowned piece. The first to choreograph the music in Russia was a Czech native, Václav Reisinger (the very first artistic director of the Czech National Ballet), and the second (Czech) choreographer, Augustin Berger, was extremely honoured when, after seeing his staging of Act 2 of Swan Lake in Prague Tchaikovsky said that he had experienced “one minute of absolute happiness”.

This John Cranko choreography is the 13th adaptation of the immortal ballet staged in the National Theatre.

The Czech National Ballet is the first big company outside Germany that obtained the right to present this great work choreographed by John Cranko and accompanied with a new set and costume design.
