Swan Lake DVD (The Royal Ballet) 2018

Notify me when this product is available:

Swan Lake has a special place in The Royal Ballet’s repertory and while Liam Scarlett's 2018 production features additional choreography, it remains faithful to Petipa and Ivanov’s classic. John Macfarlane’s opulent designs provide an atmospheric, period setting for this enthralling love story, illuminated by Tchaikovsky’s sublime score. Marianela Nuñez brings both poignancy and glitter to the dual role of Odette/Odile, with Vadim Muntagirov as the yearning Prince Siegfried, while the corps de ballet are showcased at their spellbinding best as the enchanted swans and cygnets.

"Nothing short of a triumph" Evening Standard

"The Royal Ballet's spellbinder leaves you weeping" The Guardian

"A supremely handsome production" The Observer

"A great Swan Lake must give its stars room to shine. Scarlett’s delivers in spades. Nuñez’s dancing is rich as cream, with long, floating phrasing in the white acts and seductive dazzle as the Black Swan alter ego. Muntagirov, most princely of princes, combines virtuoso splendour with aristocratic grace. Together, they create a human tenderness at the heart of this opulent new production." The Independent

Swan Lake - splendid new production

Liam Scarlett's 2018 production of Swan Lake is quite simply stunning and danced to perfection by Marianela Nunez and Vadim Muntagirov. The sets are spectacular and enhance the story beautifully. I have already watched the DVD several times.
