“A show of terrible beauty and extraordinary craft” - (The Guardian), this is not Swan Lake as you know it.

Rooted in the midlands of Ireland, ancient mythology and the ills of the modern world collide in this extraordinary adaptation of the beloved classic.

Combining soaring dancing and boundary-busting theatre, song and live music, acclaimed director Michael Keegan-Dolan swaps Tchaikovsky’s original score for Irish folk music with a Nordic noir twist.

Stunning and hard-hitting, yes. Yet good things arise out of the bad, as this extraordinary, magical performance transports you along an imagined dark path towards the light and a resounding redemption.

“It is utterly original, it is utterly brilliant.” - Irish Independent

Post-show artist talk - Thu 15 Mar, St James Theatre auditorium.
Contains strong language and sexual themes.

By Michael Keegan-Dolan.

A Sadler’s Wells co-production with Michael Keegan-Dolan; Colours International Dance Festival, Theaterhaus Stuttgart; Dublin Theatre Festival and Theatre de la Ville, Luxembourg. With support from The Civic Theatre, Tallaght, and South Dublin County Council Arts Office.

Presented by the New Zealand Festival, 23 Feb-18 Mar 2018.
Partnered by Wellington Airport and Culture Ireland.
