Update (22 April 2015): Release date and pre-order details added
The performance scheduled for release was captured during this week's live cinema relay. It stars Royal Ballet Principals Natalia Osipova and Matthew Golding, who form a formidable partnership as Odette/Odile and Prince Siegfried. Read audience reactions to the cinema relay.
‘I don’t imagine Odette as a magnificent swan’, says Natalia. ‘She is fragile and vulnerable, like a flower that has bloomed and you want to protect it. She wants to believe the Prince will save her from the curse, but she can’t. I haven’t danced Swan Lake with Matthew before – our artistic partnership has only just begun – but he’s a fabulous, incredible dancer.’
The relay featured a series of backstage films, including rehearsal footage and interviews with members of the cast and creative team.
