Swan Lake

Hold on to your horses (or swans in this case) everyone, because come March 2012, Swan Lake will be making its second staging at the Esplanade Theatre.

 

Swan Lake is a masterpiece of classical ballet and should be experienced at least once in one’s lifetime. For those of you expecting Natalie Portman to make a stage appearance, let us talk you through the basics.

 

Known as the most well known ballet piece in the world, Swan Lake relates a beautiful love tale between a beautiful princess, Odette and a prince, Siegfried. Princess Odette is cursed to appear in the form of a swan in the day and can only revert to her human self at night. Siegfried, while fleeing his castle to escape an arranged marriage, chances upon the princess and falls in love with her.

 

Having premiered in December 2007, the Singapore Dance Theatre’s Swan Lake was warmly received by both critics and audiences. This re-staging will once again be helmed by the company’s Artistic Director, Janek Schergen. Need we say more seeing that this classic ballet repertory is back for the second time?
