Description

Screening at The Drill Hall, Lower Church Street Chepstow, Sunday February 23 3pm

On Sunday 23rd February there’s the opportunity to see the brilliant Bolshoi Ballet company performing one of the most beautiful ballets with the most memorable music, Swan Lake broadcast live from Moscow will be screening at The Drill Hall, Chepstow at 3pm.

Swan Lake was born at the Bolshoi over 140 years ago – it premiered on February 20 1877, but remarkably was not a success, Tchaikovsky’s incredible score was ahead of its time. But it has made up for that many times since, it’s a ballet that has been reworked over the many intervening years both at the Bolshoi and around the world. Probably the best loved ballet in the classical canon, it’s technically challenging and filled with vibrant emotion. With the Bolshoi’s stunning and world-famous corps de ballet performing in perfect unison, and the dual personalities of Odette/Odile a fantastic tour de force for every ballerina, Swan Lake, is a must-see.

White swan by day, human by night, the beautiful Odette awaits an oath of true love to break the curse. The great legend of the enigmatic swan/woman is one of the most romantic classical ballets, appropriately set in the era of courtly romance and characterized by elegance, style and harmony.

This universal and enchanting masterpiece of love, deception and drama is a captivating ballet for fans of all ages, screening at a time – 3pm on a Sunday afternoon – that makes it accessible to all, and you can be sure of the best seat in the house. A great treat at the end of half term. Tickets priced £12 full, £10 concession are available in advance from Chepstow Museum telephone 01291 625981. The event is staged in support of Monmouthshire Museums.
