Swan Lakes graces the stage at MK Theatre

Date Posted:12/04/2016

Swan Lake Milton KeynesHaunted 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.

Swan Lake will be at Milton Keynes Theatre from 26-30 April.

Northern Ballet also perform its new children’s ballet Tortoise & the Hare at Milton Keynes Theatre on Fri 29 Apr.
