“Dancing is like dreaming with your feet. Colonel Headbanger doesn’t like dreams as they can give people ideas. People with ideas can be dangerous.”
 
Once upon a dance floor ... in a kingdom not so far away, lived Francis Footwork.

Now, Francis Footwork is no ordinary girl - she is an extraordinary dancer. When young King Two Lefties ascends to the throne, he is convinced by trusted adviser Colonel Headbanger to rule the land with an iron fist. He wants to end all dancing. Francis and her friends come together to teach him a dance lesson he will never forget!

Swan Lake

Ballet Ireland

Fri 22 - Sat 23 Nov 2019 8PM Main Auditorium // €25 / €23 conc / €18 (under 16s)

Ballet Ireland is delighted to present a national tour of Swan Lake, one of the greatest love stories of classical ballet, to 19 theatres throughout Ireland.

This most famous of ballets, combines romantic themes, classical technique and ethereal imagery together with Tchaikovsky's majestic score, to ensure this masterpiece’s immortality.

Swan Lake tells the story of Odette, a beautiful princess, who by day is turned into a swan by evil magician Von Rothbart, only to regain her human form at night. Out hunting by the Lakeside, Prince Siegfried encounters her and falls madly in love with her. But will he be able to break Von Rothbart’s spell…? 

This enduring story of love and tragedy, good and evil, has enthralled audiences since it premiered in 1877.  
This autumn 25 leading professional dancers from Ireland and abroad will perform in this breath-taking production which was loved by audiences and critics when last produced by Ballet Ireland.
