A MODERN take on a classic love story comes to Leeds as Northern Ballet’s Swan Lake returns.

Set in New England at the start of the twentieth century, a time of long lazy summers and old world grace, this production, which was first performed in 2004, features costumes capturing the luxury and refined affluence of the era. David Nixon’s production is set to Tchaikovsky’s moving score.

Mr Nixon said: “‘Our Swan Lake offers a different telling to traditional versions of the ballet whilst still remaining true to the spirit of the story and incorporating popular elements that audiences will be familiar with, from Tchaikovsky’s score to the dance of the four cygnets.”
