Introduction and prices
Swan Lake is one of the most loved of all classical ballets. It
has that magical combination of Tchaikovsky’s music, a compelling
story of tragic romance and choreography that allows the very best
dancers to show just how mesmerising they can be. The new Royal
Ballet Season opens with a revival of Anthony Dowell’s romantic
production whose designs were inspired by Imperial Russia of 1895,
when the ballet was first performed.
Against this atmospheric setting, Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov’s
choreography provides an opportunity to see great dance
partnerships in the leading roles and the whole Company in the
dance ensembles. The ethereal forms of the swans, illuminated by
moonlight, the charged solos for the Prince and Odette and her
alter-ego Odile, the machinations of Von Rothbart and the colour of
a palace ball – all combine with glorious music in an evening
of inspiration and romance.

The Balconies Restaurant opens with the House an hour and a half
before the curtain rises.
The ultimate complement to the very best in ballet and opera with
tables for dinner just a few paces from the auditorium on the
spectacular balconies. A two or three course meal served with the
buzz of the bar below and the amazing domed roof overhead.
This grand, majestic venue is ideally suited to business
entertaining or any other special occasion.
For a leisurely dinner we recommend you dine pre-performance,
have your starter and main courses and return to the same table at
the interval for your dessert.

– Top priced stall seats for Swan Lake at the Royal Opera
