BRB Swan Lake

Ballet’s greatest love story returns in Birmingham Royal Ballet’s lavish production.

Birmingham Royal Ballet revives the production by former Artistic Director of the Company Peter Wright and renowned ballerina, Galina Samsova leading you into the glorious journey of Swan Lake. Filled with exquisite ensembles, lyrical pas de deux and bravura solos, this atmospheric, romantic and lavish production of Swan Lake is an unforgettable experience.

By a moonlit lake, a grieving prince witnesses the transformation of a swan into a beautiful princess. Compelled by an evil spell to spend her days in the form of a bird, she can only be saved by the power of love. This romantic fable of ill-fated passion has bewitched audiences for generations.

The Principal dancers playing the role of Odette/Odile are Momoko Hirata, Yijing Zhang, Beatrice Parma, Yu Kurihara and Céline Gittens. Joining them as Prince Siegfried are Mathias Dingman, Haoliang Feng, Tzu-Chao Chou, Lachlan Monaghan and guest dancer from the Royal Ballet Vadim Muntagirov who will be performing for two nights only on the evening performances of Friday 17 and Saturday 18 March 2023.
