Two magical worlds collide in this exciting double bill presented for the first time in over 40 years by Ballet Theatre Queensland.
On the shores of a mystical lake Prince Siegfried declares his undying love for the beautiful Princess Odette, condemned by the sorcerer von Rothbart to be a swan for all but a few hours each night.
The glorious waltzes of Johann Strauss Jnr will then take you to a Viennese girls’ graduation ball of the 1840s. The cadets of the city’s military academy have also been invited, and flirtations, high-spirited dances, and a secret romance are the delightful result.
Staged by Artistic Director Clare Morehen, showcasing the talents of Queensland’s finest young dancers, Swan Lake Act II & Graduation Ball will delight audiences of all ages.
