Starring: Madeleine Eastoe, Robert Curran, Danielle Rowe
Graeme Murphy’s Swan Lake ballet is a witty, dramatic and ultimately devastating story of love and betrayal. Based loosely on the Princess Diana/Charles/Camilla love triangle, Murphy’s choreography is at once homage to the grandeur of 19th Century classicism, and an invigorating update that speaks compellingly to the audiences of today.
At the centre of this brilliantly danced work is a trio of performances by principal ballet dancers Madeleine Eastoe, Robert Curran and Danielle Rowe that has been acclaimed around Australia and the world.
Tchaikovsky’s peerless score, and the extraordinary settings and costumes of Kristian Fredrikson, finish off a production that according to Le Figaro ‘puts fire into the Lake’.
