Swan Lake was the first ballet to be performed by Ballet Nacional De Cuba, when Alicia Alonso established the company in 1948. Performed with drama and style, this classic production features world class performances from the full company of dancers.

 Making its long-awaited debut at the London Coliseum, Ballet Nacional De Cuba presents two programmes, Swan Lake and Magia De La Danza, which showcase the company’s unparalleled technique and extraordinary flair for invigorating Western ballets with vivid Cuban passion.

These performances feature a full live orchestra and four special guest appearances from international superstar Carlos Acosta, who performs with the company on 30 March and 1, 7 and 8 April. This will be the first time Acosta has danced with the full company of Ballet Nacional de Cuba in the UK.

Swan Lake is followed, from Tuesday 6 to Sunday 11 April, by Magia De La Danza; a mixed bill which brings together extracts from seven of the company’s most famous ballets including The Nutcracker, Coppélia and Swan Lake.
