In the woods there is enchantment...

The world’s most beloved ballet returns to its roots in the hands of Resident Choreographer Stephen Baynes and Artistic Director David McAllister. Baynes is renowned for his intense musicality and neo-classical purity. His new production of this 19th-century masterpiece focuses on the prince’s dilemma — trapped in a repressive, militaristic court, haunted by his father’s death, drawn fatefully to the lake, falling into doomed love. Designer Hugh Colman, who has brought his lavish imaginative powers to many of The Australian Ballet’s productions, will give us a Swan Lake of unprecedented magnificence.

Swan Lake has special significance for The Australian Ballet: it opened our very first season in 1962, and was reimagined by Graeme Murphy for the company’s 40th anniversary in 2002. As we turn 50, there is no more apt celebration than to give new life to this iconic favourite.

“Swan Lake is the most loved ballet of all time. In our 50th anniversary we will have a beautiful new traditional production that will be a link back to the company’s very first performance in 1962.” - David McAllister
