GRAEME MURPHY’S SWAN LAKE
After dazzling audiences in Paris, London, Tokyo and Shanghai, Graeme Murphy’s dramatically intense and visually stunning production of Swan Lake is coming to New York
is one of the world’s favorite ballets. Reimagined by superstar choreographer Graeme Murphy, this iconic work is enlivened with a contemporary storyline of passion and betrayal.
At its centre is a familiar love triangle: the innocent young maiden who discovers on the day of her wedding that her handsome prince has a prior claim on his heart. The Australian Ballet brings the spirit and scale of classical dance into the twenty-first century with extraordinary results. Opulent sets and costumes and Tchaikovsky’s immortal score make it a theatrical experience not to be missed.
Murphy’s brilliant interpretation has won numerous major awards (including the UK Critics' Circle award for Best Foreign Dance Company) and sold out theatres around the world. Find out what makes this Swan Lake so special when it makes its New York debut.
“My favourite she-dies-he-lives [production of Swan Lake] is that of The Australian Ballet ... This version, choreographed by Graeme Murphy, will be performed by the Australian company in New York, at the David H. Koch Theatre, next June. I’ll be there.” Joan Acocella, The New Yorker
