After a sell-out season in Melbourne, Graeme Murphy’s Swan Lake is heading to the Sydney Opera House.
This multiple award-winning production will open on Friday 4 April and close on Thursday 24 April.
This iconic show follows the story and fortune of Odette and takes adultery, personality disorders and the betrayal of innocence’s to a new level.
Since it’s 2002 debut, the show has gone on to sell over 170,000 tickets across Australia.
The Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra will be the driving force behind the Tchaikovsky score.
Artistic Director David McAllister said that the ongoing demand to see this work continues to astound delight him.
It is a work you can see over and over again -“ that is part of its enduring appeal, he said.
But its previous Australian seasons have all sold out so quickly that there are still many who have yet to see it for a first time.
Senior artist Adam Bull will debut as the prince alongside Danielle Rowe as femme fatale Baroness von Rothbart.
The show is also scheduled to premiere in Paris and Manchester later in the year.
Bull said Swan Lake would never date because of its history, storyline and of course its popularity.
The show was so successful in Melbourne and it’s also going to be an honour to perform at the iconic Sydney Opera House, Bull said.
It goes for three hours and follows the story of this amazing love triangle and journey.
