Following the success of their children-friendly adaptations of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Coppélia, English National Ballet and English National Ballet School return to the Peacock Theatre with My First Ballet: Swan Lake.

The classic ballet tells the story of the evil magician Rothbart who has turned the beautiful princess Odette into a swan who can only return to human form at night. Will Prince Siegfried be able to save her or will he fall for Rothbart’s sorcery?

Featuring a narrator to help the young audience follow the story and a shortened version of Tchaikovsky’s wonderful music, the My First Ballet series is specially created to make ballet accessible and enjoyable to children from the age of three and older.

This collaboration between English National Ballet and English National Ballet School is created by English National Ballet’s Associate Artist George Williamson and performed by second year students from English National Ballet School.
