World's favourite ballet arrives at Milton Keynes Theatre

Date Posted:06/11/2014

Swan Lake Milton Keynes TheatreEnglish National Ballet is returning to Milton Keynes Theatre 11 – 15 Nov with its full production of Derek Deane’s critically acclaimed Swan Lake.

Arguably one of the most popular ballets created, Swan Lake tells the story of Prince Siegfried’s love for the Swan Queen, Odette, and their battle against the evil magician, Rothbart. This traditional production brings the romance and high drama of the Russian ballet tradition alive.

Originally produced for English National Ballet by Deane, this version premiered at the London Coliseum in 2000 and has since been seen by over 550,000 people around the UK.

Joining English National Ballet from Boston Ballet, Alejandro Virelles makes his debut as Principal with the Company, performing the role of Prince Siegfried alongside Alina Cojocaru’s Odette/Odile in Derek Deane’s Swan Lake.

Swan Lake also sees lead roles from Ksenia Ovsyanick, who was recently promoted to Soloist, and Zdenek Konvalina; Tamara Rojo and the winner of Emerging Dancer 2014 Junor Souza; Fernanda Oliveira and Dmitri Gruzdyev; and Elena Glurdjidze and Arionel Vargas.

Exquisite dancing, beautiful sets and glorious music played by the full Orchestra of English National Ballet, makes this a must see autumn treat for the first time ballet dancer or the dedicated fan.  Book now at Milton Keynes Theatre Box Office, Call 0844 871 7652 (bkg fee) or visit (bkg fee)
