Swan Lake in-the-round at ROYAL ALBERT HALL
Experience a magnificent choreographic kaleidoscope as this unrivalled spectacle comes to life in the centre of the Royal Albert Hall. From lakeside seats to the top of the Hall, this in the round production of the worlds favourite ballet combines sensational scale, potent drama and touching intimacy.
As the Swan Princess Odettes tragedy is played out by a misty lake the sinister Rothbart is master of his domain. Odette is devastatingly betrayed by Prince Siegfried who has been deceived by Rothbart, but eventually the power of true love must triumph over evil.
International guest stars dance with English National Ballets magnificent company of over 120 performers. Tchaikovskys extraordinary score is performed by the Orchestra of English National Ballet as 60 swans flood the arena floor.
My daughter and I were lucky enough to see the show, and we were given aisle seats, which meant my daughter was able to be next to the dancers as they came up the stairs between the aisles.
It is a fantastic venue, to be able to sit surrounding the performers, you really get a good feel for the performance, and are immersed in the production.
My daughter was mesmerised by the show, and as she loves ballet, gave her a feeeling for what it is like to perform in front of thousands of people.
All in all, a fantastic show, and we look forward to seeing English National Ballet – Nutcracker.
