Adored by audiences for over a hundred years, Swan Lake is the most famous ballet in the world.

In Northern Ballet's emotive retelling, Anthony’s life is haunted by guilt after the tragic loss of his brother.

When he finds himself torn between two loves, he looks to the water for answers. It is there that he finds solace with the mysterious swan-like Odette.

Tchaikovsky's electrifying score is played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia as this iconic story is beautifully reimagined by David Nixon OBE (Dracula, The Little Mermaid).

Performances at Leeds Grand Theatre will be socially distanced in a chequerboard style. Audience members must wear a face covering (unless exempt).

Performances are subject to cancellation or change dependent upon changes to Government guidelines around COVID-19.

Running time
