English Youth Ballet has established a formidable reputation for classic dramatic productions of the famous full length classical ballets. EYB gives young dancers a wonderful performance opportunity to dance alongside the professional principals in the corps de ballet and solo roles in Swan Lake.

Swan Lake promises to be a traditional production but with particular emphasis on the rivalry between the seductive evil Black Swan Odile and the beautiful but vulnerable White Swan Odette, as they compete for the affections of the Prince.
Set in Russia in at the time when the Marinsky Ballet was popular with the Tsar and the Russian nobility, Baron Von Rothbart, Director of the Russian Ballet schemes to secure Royal patronage through the marriage of his daughter Odile to the Tsar’s son. Odette is eventually betrayed in this famous ballet which leads to a tragic and dramatic end. The sets designed by Sebastian Petit depict the contrast between the beautiful Act 2 Lakeside scene and the sumptuousness of the Tsar’s Palace Gardens in Act 3. Keith Bish’s Swan costume designs spectacularly enhance this dramatically bold production.
English Youth Ballet’s professional principal dancers lead the pageantry of a large cast of up to 100 young talented regional dancers in this highly acclaimed and phenomenally successful ballet company.
