Win tickets to see Paris Opera Ballet’s Swan Lake in cinemas across Australia

We have ten double passes to give away to see the Paris Opera Ballet perform Rudolf Nureyev Swan Lakescreened in Australian cinemas from April 12-17.

With Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky took on the legend of the Spotless Bird to create some of the most beautiful music ever written for ballet. Choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov left their mark on this impossible love story between an earthly prince and a bird princess, reshaping 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 with a feeling of deep despair.

Leading the cast for this performance are stars Léonore Baulac (pictured center top) in the twin role of Odette/Odile and Germain Louvet as Prince Siegfried and Principal Danseur François Alu as Rothbart.

The cinematic presentation includes the entire performance, captured live in HD from the Opéra Bastille in Paris in February, as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews and reports, hosted by the ballet’s director of dance. Paris Opera, Aurélie Dupont.

Limited season screenings April 12-17 at cinemas in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart and Perth. View theater locations and session information. See the trailer below.
