Live Broadcast of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake At Torch Theatre

A new production of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake will be live broadcast to the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven on Tuesday 12 June at 7.15pm with an encore screening on Sunday 17 June at 2pm.

One of the best-loved of classical ballets, set to a sublime score by Tchaikovsky, Swan Lake will enchant audiences, particularly with choreography by the award-winning Liam Scarlett.

The ballet follows the story of Prince Siegfried who one night encounters a flock of swans, one of whom reveals herself to be a beautiful woman called Odette. Odette is being held under a spell by the evil Von Rothbart, who later disguises his daughter Odile as Odette to trick Prince Siegfried into breaking his vow of love. But Siegfried is determined to save Odette, whatever the cost .

Liam Scarlett has created a new production, which remains faithful to the Petipa- Ivanov original but will also offer a fresh perspective on this much-loved classical ballet. Scarlett will work in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.

The performance lasts around three hours with two intervals.

The Royal Opera House’s 2018/19 Season will commence on Monday 15 October at 7.15pm with Kenneth MacMillan’s haunting psychological ballet Mayerling, followed by Wagner’s tumultuous family saga Die Walküre on Sunday 28 October 2018 at 5pm.
