Swan Lake will be screened live at Weston Odeon.


A live performance of a timeless ballet will be screened at a Weston-super-Mare cinema, promising a high-quality rendition of one of the most famous shows of all time.

Royal Ballet: Swan Lake Live will be broadcast live at Weston Odeon, in The Centre, on Tuesday at 7.15pm.

The ballet will stay true to the original script, but promises to ‘bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic’, with choreographer Liam Scarlett and designer John Macfarlane reimagining the show’s visuals.

Swan Lake was the first ballet score of legendary Russian composer Peter Tchaikovsky, debuting in 1877.

It has dazzled audiences in various guises ever since – transcending the genre to become one of the most recognisable pieces of entertainment in history.

The ballet follows Prince Siegfried, who crosses path with a flock of swans while hunting, only to find one of the swans transforms into a beautiful woman named Odette.

He becomes transfixed by Odette’s mesmerising charm, 
but learns she is subject to a powerful spell which only allows her to take her human form after dark.

The ballet will be performed to a sold-out audience on stage at London’s Royal Opera House, but will be broadcast to Odeon cinemas around the country so more people can enjoy the show.

Tickets, priced £14.75-17.25, are available online at
