Swan Lake / Loch na hEala                                                                                

From the imagination of Sadler's Wells’ Associate Artist Michael Keegan-Dolan comes a magical new adaptation of one of the world’s most famous ballets, Swan Lake

Performed by a cast of eight dancers, two actors and three musicians, this new production is rooted in a place where ancient Irish mythology and the complexity of modern Ireland meet. Keegan-Dolan creates a world of magical realism, with powerful imagery evoking the identity of his homeland. The performance is set to a captivating score of traditional Irish and Nordic Folk music, played live with fiddle, cello, banjo, whistle, voice and percussion.
