The performance scheduled for release was captured during this week's live cinema relay. It stars Royal Ballet Principals Natalia Osipova and Matthew Golding, who form a formidable partnership as Odette/Odile and Prince Siegfried.
‘I don’t imagine Odette as a magnificent swan’, says Natalia. ‘She is fragile and vulnerable, like a flower that has bloomed and you want to protect it. She wants to believe the Prince will save her from the curse, but she can’t. I haven’t danced Swan Lake with Matthew before – our artistic partnership has only just begun – but he’s a fabulous, incredible dancer.’
The relay featured a series of backstage films, including rehearsal footage and interviews with members of the cast and creative team.
Download our Swan Lake Digital Programme, which contains specially selected features to bring you closer to the production.
The date of the DVD release has yet to be agreed and will be announced in due course.
