Swan Lake In-the-Round

Sunday June 16 2013 14:30
English National Ballet performs its whizz-bang in-the-round production of 'Swan Lake', complete with a company of more than 120 dancers, an army of identikit swans and endless billowing dry ice. The choreography is cleverly turned outwards to make it a 360-degree experience and it's an impressive spectacle but can lose some of the potency of the ballet's more intimate moments. ENB boss Tamara Rojo dances the lead in three performances (Jun 12, 15, 18) with the company's principal women sharing the other nights, plus there's a career-boosting debut for young dancer Lauretta Summerscales, who gets her first bash at the Odette/Odile role in two matinee shows (Jun 20, 22).
