    Swan Lake

    On the 9th November 1995 a new production of Swan Lake was unveiled at the famous Sadlers Well Theatre in London.

    Within minutes of the performance starting though, there were ripples in the audience because the role of the swan was being danced by a man on stage for the very first time.

    Nearly twenty years later this now famous production lives on, and is visiting Dublin in a few weeks time. To find out more about the show, Evelyn O’Rourke went to London to meet up with some of the dancers and the team behind the show.

    Swan Lake is visiting Dublin later this month and will be performed from Tuesday 25th February to Saturday 1st March at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre. More information can be found at
