Overview

13 and 17 November, Norwegian Opera & Ballet: Perhaps the greatest ballet of them all

Swan Lake with Tchaikovsky’s immortal music is considered the greatest ballet of them all. The Norwegian National Ballet’s version is based on Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov’ s ballet, which was first danced in St. Petersburg in 1895.

Transformations and magic, loyalty and betrayal, black versus white—Swan Lake’s themes have made it legendary, and has inspired artists for over a century. The core of the story is the love between the swan queen Odette and prince Siegfrid, which the wizard Rothbart does everything in his power to destroy.

The ballet is a big favourite with the audience and a major challenge for the dancers. The double role as the kind swan queen Odette and the evil wizard’s daughter Odile is considered the most demanding role a ballet dancer can undertake. The ballerina must be able to master two diametrically opposite characters, and seamlessly alternate between the white and the black swan: the pure and the demonic.

Now, the dancers of the Norwegian National Ballet take the stage to show us why Swan Lake is still called the ballet of all ballets.
