Live on stage and following the success of their children-friendly adaptations of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Coppélia, English National Ballet and English National Ballet School return to the Peacock Theatre with a new addition to the enchanting My First Ballet series – My First Ballet: Swan Lake.

The evil magician Rothbart has turned the beautiful princess Odette into a swan: only at night can she return to human form. Will Prince Siegfried be able to save her, or will he fall for Rothbart’s sorcery?

Featuring a narrator to help the young audience follow the story and a shortened version of Tchaikovsky’s wonderful music, these performances are specially created to make ballet accessible and enjoyable to children from the age of 3 upwards.

This unique collaboration between English National Ballet and English National Ballet School is created by English National Ballet’s Associate Artist George Williamson and performed by second year students from English National Ballet School. A range of symbol resources are available to make the story more accessible to children with learning difficulties and disabilities. Go to ballet.org.uk for details.
