Dance your way to Christmas with Swan Lake from Ballet UK

Dance your way to Christmas with Swan Lake from Ballet UK

Ballet UK is back at The Atkinson this festive season with their new production of Swan Lake.

Having sold out their two previous performances at The Atkinson, with The Nutcracker and Little Mermaid, they now return with the perfect Christmas treat for all the family on Thursday 11 December at 6pm.

Swan Lake remains as one of the most enduring, moving and irreplaceable classical ballets due to its fantastical plot filled with romance, sorcery, and betrayal.

This spectacular new production of this timeless classic tells tales of a princess held captive as a swan by the spell of an evil magician, a spell that can only be broken if a prince swears true love to her.

Featuring new choreography by Artistic Director Christopher Moore and over 120 new costumes and stunning sets this production promises to provide you with a new look at the classic tale and leave you with a new love for Swan Lake.

Autumn 2014 **** –
