MAC:Live – Swan Lake live from the Royal Ballet
We are absolutely THRILLED to announce that we are launching our MAC:Live programme- live screenings direct from venues including the Royal Opera House and National Theatre, meaning you can enjoy live action from these prestigious venues on the big screen whilst sat in a real theatre.
Kicking things off is The Royal Ballet’s world premiere of Liam Scarlett’s ‘Swan Lake’ which will be broadcast live on Tuesday 12 June 2018 at 7.15pm direct from the Royal Opera House.
To celebrate this wonderful announcement we are offering HALF PRICE tickets for the launch!
One of the best-loved of classical ballets, set to a sublime score by Tchaikovsky, Swan Lake will enchant audiences, particularly with choreography by the award-winning Liam Scarlett. The ballet follows the story of Prince Siegfried who one night encounters a flock of swans, one of whom reveals herself to be a beautiful woman called Odette. Odette is being held under a spell by the evil Von Rothbart, who later disguises his daughter Odile as Odette to trick Prince Siegfried into breaking his vow of love. But Siegfried is determined to save Odette, whatever the cost .
Liam Scarlett has created a new production, which remains faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov original but will also offer a fresh perspective on this much-loved classical ballet. Scarlett will work in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.
The performance lasts around three hours with two intervals.
