Live Satellite Screening - Royal Ballet Encore : SWAN LAKE

Venue: The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth IP19 8BY link
A new production of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent classical ballet with additional choreography by Liam Scarlett and designs by John MacFarlane.
While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet.
Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score. Given its status today as arguably the best loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture.
Ticket Details: Ticket price - Standard £13.00
