WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
After its sell-out success last year, critical acclaim and Best Production award-win at the Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards, Sadler's Wells Associate Artist Michael Keegan-Dolan's magical adaptation of one of the most famous ballets in the world returns to Sadler's Wells. Performed by a company of 13 world-class performers including actor Mikel Murfi, Swan Lake/Loch na hEala is interwoven with storytelling, song and live music. Dublin based band Slow Moving Cloud's score combines Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences. With powerful imagery, this Swan Lake is rooted in the Midlands of Ireland where ancient mythology and the modern world collide.
