This Royal Ballet production of Swan Lake offers the possibility of an unforgettable experience. • Seen here in it's final staging, Anthony Dowell's interpretation of Petipa and Ivanov's 1895 St Petersburg version set a standard and style that made it a 'yardstick for others' (New York Times). • The choreography takes account of the entire company, including the coveted double role of the gentle and vulnerable swan queen Odette and her predatory alter-ego, the black swan Odile. • It is a challenge relished by principal ballerinas, and is danced here by Natalia Osipova, partnered by Matthew Golding as Prince Siegfried, two of the Royal Ballet's newest and brightest stars. • Tchaikovsky's glorious score shines, given the full force of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House conducted by Boris Gruzin, and Yolanda Sonnabend's detailed, Fabergé-inspired designs evoke the atmosphere of Imperial Russia in the era of the ballet's creation. • Extra features include an Introduction with Natalia Osipova and Matthew Golding, Anthony Dowell in conversation with Darcey Bussell, Coaching Swan Lake and a cast gallery. • 'Osipova was riveting throughout... [Golding] demonstrates real brilliance and prowess.' (The New York Times) • 'This is a Swan Lake not to be missed' (The Stage)
