For the first time in its 100 year history, the Estonian National Ballet has touched down in Dublin with a full length classic production of Swan Lake , accompanied by the National Opera Orchestra.

The Estonian National Ballet’s Swan Lake beckons the audience to another world . Ballet fans including those making Swan Lake their first experience at the ballet, are captivated by Prince Siegfried’s love for the Swan Queen Odette and the drama of their battle against the evil sorcerer Rothbart.

From the unforgettable corps de ballet  moving in magical unison as majestic, glimmering swans to the fiery and refined dance in the spectacular ballroom scenes, this romantic fable inspires awe and wonder
