We have ten double passes to give away to see Paris Opera Ballet perform Rudolf Nureyev’s Swan Lake, screening in Australian cinemas April 12-17.
With Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky took up the legend of the immaculate bird to create some of the most beautiful music ever written for ballet. The choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov left their distinguished mark on this story of an impossible love between an earthly prince and a bird-princess, refashioning the myth of the swan-dancer, the ultimate ballerina.
When creating his version for the Paris Opera Ballet in 1984, Nureyev chose to give it a Freudian dimension, illuminating Tchaikovsky’s poetic dream through a sense of profound hopelessness.
Leading the cast for this performance are étoiles Léonore Baulac (pictured centre top) in the twin role of Odette/Odile and Germain Louvet as Prince Siegfried and Premier Danseur François Alu as Rothbart.
The cinema presentation includes the full performance, captured live in HD from Paris’s Opéra Bastille in February, as well as exclusive behind the scenes interviews and features, hosted by Paris Opera Ballet’s Director of Dance Aurelie Dupont.
Limited season screens 12-17 April in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart and Perth cinemas. See cinema locations and session info. View the trailer below.
