Upcoming show: Swan Lake
The upcoming and final show from the Royal Opera House and the Royal Ballet 2017/2018 Season, Swan Lake, will be screened on 17 June, from 16.00, at Happy Cinema Bucharest.
The ballet is a 2018 production of Tchaikovsky’s classical ballet, its choreography signed by Liam Scarlett and the stage design by John Macfarlane.
Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertoire of The Royal Ballet since 1934. This season, The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett.
