Northern Ballet Theatre: Swan Lake and Mixed Bill

It may be the world’s most popular ballet in its traditional form, but Swan Lake can withstand a fair bit of manipulation. David Nixon’s innovative version takes place in New England during the early 20th century, where a wealthy college boy and his pals find themselves thrown into a coming-of-age tragedy. Later in the week, Northern Ballet Theatre dishes up an impressive Mixed Bill showcasing its ability to switch from classical to contemporary in the flick of a pointe shoe.

Edinburgh Festival Theatre, Tue 17–Sat 21 Mar (not Fri).

Swan Lake

  • Written by: David Nixon

Romance and heartbreak in balletic form performed to Tchaikovsky's stirring score.

Northern Ballet Theatre: Mixed Programme
