The splendour of ballet on a grand scale at the Royal Albert Hall
Presented by the Royal Albert Hall and English National Ballet, Derek Deane’s Swan Lake in-the-round caused a sensation at its premiere in 1997, and has since been enjoyed by over half a million people worldwide.
With 60 swans, stunning costumes and atmospheric lighting, this breathtaking in-the-round production, set to Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous score, transforms the Royal Albert Hall into a magical lake.
Combining gorgeous spectacle, compelling drama and touching intimacy, it enthrals and delights, from the lakeside seats to the top of the Hall, with Tchaikovsky’s memorable score played live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic.
Swan Lake is choreographed and directed by Derek Deane, with design by Peter Farmer and lighting by Howard Harrison.
Swan Lake in-the-round will play the Royal Albert Hall from 12 to 23 June 2023.
