There’s something hypnotic about tragedy. Mixed with love, dance and drama, a tale can be riveting while tearing your heart to shreds. Be prepared when you go for Swan Lake, at Dubai Opera, next year, for the story of Odette, a graceful woman turned into a swan, and her prince, is bound to cause an outpouring of tears. A live orchestra accompanies the production.
Houston Ballet will bring the epic ballet, set to the haunting Tchaikovsky score, to the city from October 24 to 27.

I am delighted to announce that Houston Ballet will be bringing their brilliant production of this eternal story to the Dubai Opera stage in October, accompanied of course by Tchaikovsky’s incredible score performed by a live orchestra, all-in-all a thrilling treat for ballet fans throughout the region.”
