Russian State Ballet and Opera House will present Swan Lake at the Lighthouse Theatre.

Swan Lake is arguably one of the most loved and challenging ballets, not least thanks to Tchaikovsky’s instantly recognisable and timeless score, but also the great Pas de Deux, Pas de Quatre and iconic Dance des Petits Cygnes.

The story moves from the impressive splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation.

It tells of a princess turned into a swan by an evil curse – with the audience discovering whether Prince Siegfried’s love will prove strong enough to save her.

Swan Lake is known for capturing the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.

The performance starts at 7.30pm. Visit or call the box office on 01536 4141414 to book tickets and for more information.
