My First Ballet: Swan Lake

My First Ballet: Swan Lake Overview

Give children a first taste of the magical world of ballet.

Enjoy one of the most famous ballets of all time together, in this beautifully adapted new version for children aged three upwards.

The magician Rothbart has turned the princess Odette into a swan; only at night can she return to human form. Will Prince Siegfried be able to save her or will he fall for Rothbart’s sorcery? Featuring choreography by Antonio Castilla, English National Ballet’s Ballet Master and Repetiteur, this new version follows the familiar story from a different point of view.

With a narrator to help the young audience follow the story, and a shortened version of Tchaikovsky’s wonderful music, this is the perfect introduction to the magic of ballet, and a fantastic family day out.
 
This unique collaboration between English National Ballet and English National Ballet School is performed by students of English National Ballet School.
 
Since its creation in 2012, over 250,000 people have enjoyed our My First Ballet series.
