Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) will be closing its Pride and Passion season 2019 with one of the world’s most famous and well-loved ballet of all time, Swan Lake. The world-class ballet performance is set to dazzle the stage of the Esplanade Theatre from 5 to 8 December 2019.
With an ever-compelling narrative and technically demanding choreography, Swan Lake offers a timeless story and a spectacle unlike any other. Accompanied by exquisite costumes and enchanting moments, this classic masterpiece remains to be the favourite ballet of many children and adults.
A timeless jewel in the crown by the legendary choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, Swan Lake is well-established in SDT’s repertoire.
“Swan Lake was first presented by Singapore Dance Theatre in 2007. It was a bold step in the company’s development and represented a strengthening of the classical heritage of the company’s repertoire. We have presented the ballet several times since that time and in each series of performances the ballet has gained in depth of artistic development and achievement,” said Artistic Director Janek Schergen.
“This year, for the first time, Swan Lake will be presented with full orchestra with the collaboration between Singapore Dance Theatre and Metropolitan Festival Orchestra once more. The marriage of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score and the remarkable choreography for Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov is the reason this ballet remain the most famous of all classical ballets,” he added.
