NORTHERN BALLET BRING CLASSIC LOVE STORY TO SHEFFIELD
Northern Ballet returns to the Lyceum Theatre this spring with modern classic Swan Lake from Tuesday 15 – Saturday 19 March. A modern take on a beautifully tragic tale of love and obsession, Swan Lake, choreographed by David Nixon OBE, is told through the Company’s unique blend of classical ballet and drama
Haunted by a childhood tragedy resulting in the death of his beloved brother, Anthony looks to the water for answers – in whatever form they take. An ethereal swan-like creature emerges and Anthony finds an unknown joy and freedom he has not felt since he was a boy, but on returning home, he finds himself conflicted. Torn between his two friends, the mystical swan beckons – what path will Anthony choose?
Set in New England at the start of the twentieth century, a time of long lazy summers and old world grace, this production, which was first performed in 2004, features costumes capturing the luxury and refined affluence of the era.
Set designs by Dave Gillan, lighting by Peter Mumford and Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable score played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia complete the retelling of this infamous story.
Lovers of dance will not want to miss this absorbing adaptation of one of the greatest love stories of all time.
