Heading to the ballet to see Swan Lake is somewhat of a Christmas tradition – and this year a company is coming to Bahrain all the way from Russia to perform.
The world-famous Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre are set to put on Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece at Bahrain National Theatre on November 12.
This special performance, which will begin at 8pm, has been scheduled to coincide with the anniversary of the national theatre’s opening back in 2012.
The traditional story follows how how princess Odette is turned into a swan by sorcerer Von Rothbart – but November’s performance will be a slight reinterpretation of the original.
But don’t worry – the performance retains all the key features of the classical choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov.
Tickets aren’t yet available, but you can head to the Virgin Megastore when they are.
Tue Nov 12 8pm. Bahrain National Theatre, Manama (1700 1908).
