“Nothing short of a triumph” – Evening Standard ★★★★★
“What a magnificent achievement this is. The young choreographer Liam Scarlett has given Covent Garden its first new Swan Lake in 30 years, and it’s a winner. Big, bold and beautiful, it’s completely distinctive – Scarlett has put his stamp all over this production – yet it honours the traditions of the Royal Ballet.” – The Times ★★★★★
“From glittering court acts to the misty romantic lakeside, it balances spectacle, storytelling and powerful dancing from the entire company, with Marianela Nuñez and Vadim Muntagirov on glorious form in the leading roles.” – The Independent ★★★★★
“… it stands out from so many other Swan Lakes in its attention to dramatic detail … Macfarlane beautifully transforms the stage to a blasted lake and a Turner-esque moon” – The Guardian ★★★★
