English Youth Ballet premiers a new production of Swan Lake at the New Theatre. It 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.  Enjoy the beautiful dancing of the swans in the Lakeside scene and the sumptuous contrast of the Tsar's Palace Gardens in Act 3.

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 Company.

The policy of the English Youth Ballet is to perform full length productions of classical ballet in the regional theatres of the UK, and to give young dancers outside London an opportunity to perform within a professional setting. English Youth Ballet boasts sell-out performances has great popularity throughout the UK. This popular Company brings their beautiful new production of Swan Lake to Cardiff.
