Swanlake – Royal Opera House Live

Surely the greatest of all Romantic ballets, Swan Lake is a perfect synthesis of choreography and music. In creating this production, Anthony Dowell aimed to return to an authentic version of the choreography created by the great Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov for the Mariinsky Theatre in 1895. Yolanda Sonnabend’s designs draw on the Russian Imperial Court of that period with an inspired blend of historical accuracy and gothic fantasy. The court scenes of Acts I and III have a dark glamour rooted in the opulent style of Carl Faberge, while the famous lakeside ‘white’ acts are rich with mist, shadow and moonlight.
