Performed at the Royal Opera House and streamed to cinemas is this new production of Tchaikovsky’s classical ballet featuring additional choreography by artist-in-residence Liam Scarlett.

Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured.
