Swan Lake at the Royal Opera House – 29th July to 10th August 2016

It is a rare opportunity to see The Bolshoi’s famous adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s glorious ballet, with choreography by Yuri Grigorovich after Petipa and Ivanov

The Bolshoi’s ground breaking production of Swan Lake is a masterpiece of lyricism, drama and magic. It was created by Yuri Grigorovich, former director of the Bolshoi and an esteemed choreographer in his own right, after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov’s celebrated 1895 production. Set to Tchaikovsky’s magical score, this timeless favourite embodies all the elements that have made Swan Lake, one of the world’s best loved ballets, as the forces of evil attempt to thwart the love between the swan-princess Odette and her Prince Siegfried.

Running times

The production lasts around 2 hours 30 minutes, including one interval.
