Swan Lake announced for Dubai Opera
Dubai Opera announced that Swan Lake, performed by Houston Ballet, will come to Dubai next year.

One of the world's most popular ballets, Swan Lake, will come to Dubai Opera next year.

One of the most beloved ballets of all time, Swan Lake - performed by Houston Ballet - will come to Dubai from 24th – 27th October 2018, in partnership with Van Cleef & Arpels.

Swan Lake has enchanted audiences across the globe for more than 100 years with its timeless tale of good versus evil, interwoven with love and tragedy.

First performed in Moscow in 1877, it tells the story of Odette, a beautiful maiden who is transformed into a swan by an evil knight, and the prince who swears his eternal love for her.

Accompanied by a live orchestra, the emotionally powerful and visually stunning production is set to the hauntingly beautiful and iconic Tchaikovsky score. 

“Swan Lake is a ballet masterpiece and one of the most popular works for audiences today," Jasper Hope, chief executive at Dubai Opera. 

"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.”

Tickets for Swan Lake, starting from AED250, will be available to purchase from www.dubaiopera.com
