ABOUT: You Can't go Wrong with the Most Beautiful Ballet of All Time...
The magical combination of Tchaikovsky’s music, a compelling story of romance and beauty that has mesmerized audiences for more than 100 years, and choreography that allows the very best dancers to show just how outstanding they can be is set against the atmospheric setting of the ethereal visions of the swans illuminated by moonlight and the colors of a palace ball in a two act version choreographed by Chiara Ajkun.
