Swan Lake – Cork City Ballet 2023

Thurs 2 Nov - Sat 4 Nov 2023, 12am

Cork City Ballet present Tchaikovsky’s cherished classic Swan Lake at Cork Opera House in 2023

If you’ve never seen Swan Lake, now’s the time!  Cork City Ballet is back, and the company’s full-length production of this ballet lays claim to a legacy that extends back to its premiere at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1895.
Cork City Ballet’s production promises to be spectacular, from the opulent costumes to the alluring sets, especially the opening scene’s gold-tinged, tree-framed park in the shadow of the great castle and lake. All the well-loved elements are still in place including the magical “white acts”, with the famous cygnets’ dance for four girls; the exquisite white swan pas de deux; and the Act 3 climactic ‘Black Swan’ pas de deux complete with thirty-two fouettés – all wrapped up in Tchaikovsky’s glorious score.
As usual, Cork City Ballet will have exquisite guest artistes to dance the lead roles of Odette/Odile and Prince Siegfried, and they will be accompanied by soloists and a full corps de ballet.
Swan Lake opens at the Cork Opera House on Thursday 2nd November and runs until Saturday 4th November, with a matinee on Saturday at 2.30pm.

Tickets €27/€33/€38/€43. Family ticket €120. Limited early bird available. Booking fees may apply.
