One of the most magical ballets of all, Swan Lake will be performed in miniature by two professional ballet dancers in a co-production by Living Spit and Theatre Orchard.

Performances will be held at Weston's Blakehay Theatre, in Wadham Street, on January 15-18 at 7.30pm.

The show is described as the smallest ballet ever performed (probably).

REVIEW: Living Spits' Swan Lake is much more than just Romeo and Juliet with birds.

Writers Howard Coggins and Stu Mcloughlin will be joined on stage by two real-live ballet dancers in what promises to be one of the funniest, danciest, water-fowlest, micro-ballets the world has ever seen.

The dynamic duo, Francisca Mendo and Josh Hutchby, promise to leave their tutus at home, but promises are made to be broken.
