This stunning production by The Royal Swedish Ballet, produced by Ross MacGibbon, stars Nathalie Nordquist as Odette/Odile and Anders Nordström as Prince Siegfried.

Choreographer Peter Wright stages Swan Lake as a romantic Gothic tragedy. This invigorating version focuses on the heartbreaking role of the Prince in this dramatic classic, honouring the1895 Pepita/Ivanov original.

'This new staging of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake from the Royal Swedish Ballet features a dance ensemble of breathtaking wonder in a majestic staging true to the values of the original production. Nathalie Nordquist is an enchanting Odette, and … a characterful Odile…The swans are the last word in poise and grace ...the picture quality is first class with good front-to-back depth. The special features are just that; an audio commentary on the plot, a list of notable productions, an interview with the two principal dancers, a history of the Royal Swedish Ballet…and, best of all, an interview of wisdom and insight from Sir Peter Wright, the choreographer…'
