English National Ballet's Swan Lake

Swan Lake

Music by Tchaikovsky

English National Ballet

Palace Theatre, Manchester

8 October 2014

This is a thrilling production of the classic ballet.

All the essential elements are present: beautiful performances of choreography by Petipa, Ivanov and Ashton; a vibrant rendition of Tchaikovsky’s rich and complex score by the Orchestra of English National Ballet; an elegant and erotic swan/princess in Alina Cojocaru and with Alejandro Virelles taking full command of the role of the gallant Prince Siegfried.  140 more words

The one hour, gold coin donation, performance started with the NZSD Scholars (who are 14 or younger) dancing to ballet Etudes. 199 more words
