About The Australian Ballet
The Australian Ballet, Asia Pacific’s pre-eminent ballet company, makes a welcome return to the UK to perform Graeme Murphy’s Swan Lake and Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderella at the London Coliseum in July 2016.
Swan Lake bursts with glamour, wit and intrigue and follows the doomed love triangle between Odette, Baroness Rothbart and Prince Siegfried. Set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score and danced with breath taking excellence, this is a passionate retelling of the traditional tale with a contemporary twist – under the veil of royal protocol, intrigue abounds in this tragic story of one prince torn between two loves.
The Australian Ballet present the European premiere of acclaimed choreographer Alexei Ratmansky’s energetic production of Cinderella, bubbling with humour and set to Prokofiev’s divinely romantic score.
Whilst her outrageous stepmother and her excitable daughters prepare for the Royal Ball, Cinderella dreams of dancing with the Prince. Later that evening, magically her rags become a glittering gown and, escorted byheavenly stars and planets, she arrives at the Ball. From that very moment the Prince is smitten, midnight strikes and one lost slipper later, he must now embark on a world-wide journey to find his lost love.
