A Swan Lake

Alexander Ekman's witty, inventive and powerful take on the most famous ballet of all.

Act 1 is part stage play, part dance theatre, telling the story of the very first, disastrous production of Swan Lake in 1877. The dancers of the Norwegian National Ballet are joined on stage by acclaimed actors Fridtjov Såheim (Lilyhammer) and Jan Gunnar Røise, as well as soprano Elisabeth Teige from the Norwegian National Opera.

In Act 2, the stage is filled with 5,000 litres of water and the swans are given a 21st century makeover in neoprene costumes by Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov. The famous conflict between the White and Black Swan is played out with dramatic intensity by Norwegian National Ballet’s Camilla Spidsøe and Melissa Hough.
