Queensland Ballet's Swan Lake at Brolga Theatre
What it's all about
The fun, the excitement
Young maiden Odette and her friends are victims of a terrible spell that turns them into swans by day, and only at night do they return to human form. To break the spell, the beautiful Odette must find eternal love.
After celebrating his birthday, Prince Siegfried comes across a lake where, at midnight, Odette transforms from a swan into a beautiful woman. Siegfried falls in love instantly but is tricked and betrayed by the seductive Black Swan, Odile.
True love prevails in this powerful story set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score. Ben Stevenson’s Swan Lake was a sell-out sensation in Brisbane — now this spectacular ballet tours to five major centres in regional Queensland.
Queensland Ballet is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
