Tchaikovsky’s romantic ballet ‘Swan Lake’ will be brought to life by the Russian State Ballet along with ‘Coppélia’ and ‘Sleeping Beauty’ over the course of three days. ‘Swan Lake’ tells the captivating story of a temptress who seduces the Prince and the spellbinding purity of the swan queen, Odette. From the splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, the dual role of Odette and Odile is one of ballet’s most unmissable technical challenges.

‘Coppélia’ is set in a dollmaker’s shop and is a tale of mistaken identity. Composed by Delibes, it tells the story about confused lovers following mischievous Swanilda, her suitor Franz and toymaker Dr Coppélius.

A favourite among children, ‘Sleeping Beauty’ is a classic story of love, innocence and magic. Tchaikovsky’s score sets the scene for a fantasy world in which the Lilac Fairy struggles against the evil Carabosse. Coming to the Grand, Wolverhampton from Thursday 30 January to Saturday 1 February, tickets for the trio are priced from £19 for each performance – call 01902 429212 or visit grandtheatre.co.uk for more details.
