The Russian State Ballet and Opera House • Swan Lake • Sunday 18 November 2018
Returning to the Caird Hall Dundee with two performances only on Sunday
18 November 2018.
The Russian State Ballet and Opera House
Swan Lake - timeless Ballet with exquisite dancing
Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky
Featuring live Orchestra with over 30 musicians
Following a near sell out performance last year, The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is back for their annual UK tour with a mesmerising, and captivating full touring ballet production.
One hundred and thirty-five years ago, audiences heard the Swan Lake music by the great Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for the very first time. From this moment on, the world of ballet would never be the same again.
Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so closely one can easily be mistaken for the other.
It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is turned into a swan by an evil curse. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman he is instantly captivated - will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under?
From the impressive splendour of the palace ballroom to the moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all.
Swan Lake captures, like no other, the full range of human emotions - from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.
A wonderful ballet from which you will cherish memories for a long time.

Jason Manford: • Muddle Class • Saturday 15 September 2018
Phil McIntyre Entertainments, by arrangement with Lisa Thomas Management
Jason Manford: Muddle Class
He’s back! It’s been a busy few years for Jason since his last smash-hit stand up show but fans of his Absolute Radio show will know this nationally acclaimed comedian hasn’t changed a bit. 'Muddle Class' promises to feature a wealth of new material about Jason growing up ‘working class’ then finding, over the years, that part of him has become ‘middle class’ - causing much confusion! Delivered with Jason’s amiable charm and captivating wit, this is a show not to be missed.
Jason said: “Somebody said to me on my Facebook fan page, 'it's been ages since you've toured'. I thought 'no way, it was last year wasn't it? Anyway, long story short, they were right, it was years ago! I just got fooled cos I've been on tour doing musicals and the last tour is repeated on Dave ja Vu 13 times a day! So I’ve been putting some stuff together, looking at my life and how it's changed over the years, how the world has changed and how my parents haven't changed a bit! It's going to be a great tour and I can't wait to see you there.
‘8 out of 10 Cats’ (Channel 4), ‘The Nightly Show’ (ITV1), ‘Sunday Night at the Palladium’ (ITV1), ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC One), ‘Have I Got News For You’, (BBC One), QI (BBC Two) and ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ (ITV1) have all helped establish Jason as a nationally known comic.
