Tuesday, 12 June 2018, 10:39 Last update: about 11 months ago

Experience the artistic masterpiece that is Swan Lake, live at the Eden Cinemas on Tuesday, 12 June at 6.15pm, followed by an encore show on Sunday, 17 June at 3.05pm.

Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934. This season, The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by artist-in-residence Liam Scarlett. While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet and Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.


Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky's first ballet score and is arguably the best loved and most admired of all classical ballet. It is also interesting to mention that two of our very own Maltese ballet dancers, Mayara Magri and Claire Calvert will be performing in this rendition of Swan Lake!

Tickets for Swan Lake are available at €18 for adults and €10 for children under 16. This includes a complimentary glass of wine, free parking at the Eden Leisure car park and 25% discount at Waterbiscuit. For the encore screening, tickets are priced at €15 for adults and €10 for children, including free parking and 25% discount at Waterbiscuit.

This event is sponsored by Vivian Corporation, Villa Sandi, Casa Modena, Encore magazine, The Malta Arts Council and Waterbiscuit.
