No white tutus, no Tchaikovsky - this Swan Lake is like no other.
Direct from its critically acclaimed season at Sadler’s Wells and sold out performances throughout Europe, comes a genre-defying, contemporary reimagining of one of the most famous ballets in the world.
Fusing contemporary dance, live music and traditional Irish folklore, this brilliantly dark adaptation of Swan Lake is set deep in the Irish midlands. It follows the plight of four sisters, cursed to take the form of birds after having witnessed a heinous crime.
Award-winning writer, director and choreographer Michael Keegan-Dolan (Giselle, The Bull, The Rite of Spring) has forged a searing new vision for this beloved tale, creating a world of terrible beauty, magical realism, powerful imagery and potent storytelling.
Presented by Sydney Opera House.
Co-production by Michael Keegan-Dolan; Sadlers Wells Theatre London; Colours International Dance Festival, Theaterhaus Stuttgart; Dublin Theatre Festival and Theatre de la Ville, Luxembourg. With support from The Civic Theatre, Tallaght, and South Dublin County Council Arts Office. International Touring supported by Culture Ireland.
