WIN: Tickets to see Swan Lake at Weston’s Playhouse Theatre

PUBLISHED: 09:00 14 April 2018

Swan Lake.

Swan Lake.


One of the most famous, well-known ballets in the world will come to Weston’s Playhouse Theatre next month and the Mercury is offering readers the chance to see if for free.

The Vienna Festival Ballet will perform their version of Swan Lake, complete with Tchaikovsky’s magical score.

Lavish costumes, stunning scenery, international stars and some truly glorious music will make this remarkable show a must-see.

The traditional ballet will capture the raw human emotions like no other as the characters experience hope, despair, terror, melancholy and ecstasy all in one show.

The story is based on Russian and German folk tales and tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse.

Odette spends her days as a swan swimming on a lake of her parents’ tears and her nights in her beautiful human form.

Prince Siegfried finds Odette where they quickly fall in love but, like most fairytales, things are not that easy as the sorcerer prepares to play more tricks to tear the two apart.

The timeless love story mixes magic, tragedy and romance across four acts in this traditional ballet, complete with pointe shoes and tutus.

Vienna Festival Ballet’s Swan Lake will begin at The Playhouse Theatre, in High Street, at 7.30pm on May 10.

Tickets, priced £15.50-22.50, are available at or by calling the box office on 01934 645544.

The Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse to offer two lucky readers a pair of tickets to the show.

This competition will close at 10am on April 20 and entries will not be accepted after the deadline.

Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final. By entering this competition you are agree to be contacted by Archant.
