Swan Lake

Considered the greatest of all classical ballets, Swan Lake is a perfect synthesis of music and dance. We are thrilled to be able to present this important revival of Russell Kerr's timeless production, our first since 2013, with the support of colleagues from the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (Wellington), the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra (Christchurch), and the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (Auckland).

With Tchaikovsky's sweeping score - lush, romantic, instantly recognisable - and Kristian Fredrikson's opulent designs, gorgeously lit by Jon Buswell, Swan Lake transports the audience from palace ballroom to lakeside in wave upon wave of beauty and emotion.
