Scottish Ballet's Swan Lake Talk Ballet

Hear about the making of the production direct from members of our Artistic and Engagement teams. This fascinating half hour talk is the perfect way to learn more about the show before you take your seat.

The world’s most popular ballet, retold for a new generation.

Lose yourself in the raw intensity of this sleek and unmissable Swan Lake, returning to Scotland after its sell-out 2016 debut.

The strong, graceful Odette captivates young and lonely Siegfried, their duets powered by emotional honesty. She flies across the stage towards him, flanked by shifting formations of swans – reflections of her true form. But Siegfried mistakenly betrays his love for the fierce passion of Odile, who whips the air around her into a thrilling physical and psychological frenzy.

Arching backs, spiralling arms and mesmerising patterns push the Company dancers to their physical limits in this tale of purity versus seduction. David Dawson’s daring, visceral choreography is perfectly paired with the rich, romantic Tchaikovsky score, played live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.

Stripped-down, sleek and stylish
