Witness a magnificent re-telling of ballet’s most enduring classic, Swan Lake, with the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s new production Black Swan, White Swan.
This stripped down, elemental version of the story, created by Slovak choreographer Mário Radačovský, injects a contemporary twist while preserving the agony and ecstasy of Tchaikovsky’s original score. With its focus on Siegfried’s struggle with ideal love, pure evil, temptation, and most of all, himself, this is a Swan Lake for the 21st century.
Choreography: Mário Radačovský
Music: Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
