Paris Opéra Ballet: SWAN LAKE


Screening in Melbourne direct from Paris!
Exclusive to Palace Balwyn, Brighton Bay and Cinema Como.
17 to 22 February

Étoiles, Amandine Albisson and Mathieu Ganio lead an outstanding cast of dancers in Rudolf Nureyev’s SWAN LAKE, a staging first conceived for the Paris Opera Ballet in 1984. Captured live from the Opéra Bastille stage late last year.

Drawing on ancient Slavic and Norse mythology where destiny is often born out of the mysterious forces of nature, Swan Lake has become a legend in its own right. Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score is imbued with a deep sense of nostalgia, echoing the composer’s own experience of love as elusive as it was impossible.


In Rudolf Nureyev’s “Freudian” version, conceived for the Paris Opera Ballet in 1984, Prince Siegfried's role is elevated to that of the hero.

Conductor: Vello Pähn
Orchestra: Orchestre de l’Opéra national de Paris
Cast: Amandine Albisson (Odette/Odile), Mathieu Ganio (Prince Siegfried), François Alu (Rothbart), Léonore Baulac, Hannah O'Neill, Germain Louvet
