Swan Lake
The greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score. From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.
‘Dazzling costumes were complemented by a spectacle of wonderfully choreographed group routines and awe inspiring solo performances’
‘This production is a triumph’
Plymouth Evening Herald

The Sleeping Beauty
Every child’s favourite fairy tale, this is the classic story of love and innocence, mystery and magic set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score. Stunning choreography, sumptuous costumes and wonderful sets form the fantasy world in which the Lilac Fairy struggles against the evil Carabosse.
‘The fairy tale characters were truly sublime’
