• The Australian Ballet - Swan Lake

    1K views 3 months ago
    Kicking off The Australian Ballet's London visit from 13 – 16 July, and breathing new life into the timeless romance of Odette and Prince Siegfried, Graeme Murphy’s critically-acclaimed Swan Lake sees the traditional tale of the world’s greatest ballet unfolding with a contemporary twist.

    Murphy’s Swan Lake, produced to mark the company’s 40th anniversary in 2002, follows the fortunes of Odette who is betrothed to Prince Siegfried, but she is deeply apprehensive about his relationship with Baroness von Rothbart. It’s not until after the wedding that the true nature of Siegfried and the Baroness’ relationship becomes clear, causing Odette such distress that by royal command she is committed to a sanatorium. There she finds comfort and escape amongst serene white swans in a frozen dream world.

    Critics worldwide have picked up on more than a hint of another world-famous royal triangle, finding several parallels in this Swan Lake adaptation of love and betrayal.

    Kristian Fredrikson’s inspired set and costume designs frame Murphy’s choreography danced to Tchaikovsky’s immortal score. The Australian Ballet won the UK’s Critics’ Circle National Dance Award for Best Foreign Dance Company following its Swan Lake performances in the UK in 2005; it is a much-lauded production not to be missed.
