Meet the artistic team after the second performance.
Michael Keegan-Dolan's magical adaptation of  Swan Lake has won the  Irish Times Best Production Award (2016)   and has recently received the coveted UK  National Dance Award  for  Best Modern Choreography .

Audiences the world over believe they know Swan Lake , but not like this. From the imagination of one of Europe's foremost dance and theatre-makers, Sadler's Wells Associate Artist, Michael Keegan-Dolan, comes a bold, yet magical, new adaptation of one of the most famous ballets in the world. Featuring beautiful dancing and powerful imagery, Swan Lake is accompanied by a captivating score of traditional Irish-Nordic folk music, played live on stage by the trio Slow Moving Clouds. In this reimagined Swan Lake, Keegan-Dolan uses the traditional story as its basis, but creates a world of magical realism. With ten performers and three musicians, Keegan-Dolan digs deeply into the psyche of the modern Irish soul and touches on many of the issues that Irish society is trying to arise from. A critical success at the Dublin Theatre Festival and at Sadler's Wells, winner for best production at the Irish Times Theatre Awards 2017, this Swan Lake is rooted in a place where ancient Irish mythology and modern Ireland meet.

» A skilfully crafted work that touches on weakness and power, darkness and transcendence, this is clear-voiced theatre with magic in its veins. The Evening Standard, Lindsey Winship

» With this new reimagining of Swan Lake he elevates it to a place of bleak, funny and astoundingly poetic beauty. The Guardian, Judith Mackrell
