The International Classic Ballet Theatre

Swan Lake

Thu 4 Jan 2024

This new year, Lighthouse Poole welcomes the return of Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, spectacular productions of the world’s most popular ballets. Tchaikovsky’s instantly recognisable scores, performed by a live orchestra, complete this delightful experience.

Swan Lake is the tragic tale of love that triumphs over evil, as Prince Siegfried falls in love with Odette, Queen of the Swans, only to be tricked into betraying her with devastating consequences.

The company will also perform The Nutcracker.

The ballets are presented by The International Classic Ballet Theatre. This company of international dancers, represented by PACE Ballet USA, made its UK debut in 2022/23 to great acclaim. Each dancer is carefully selected for their grace, skill and athleticism, essential for the classical style of ballet presented.
