“I wanted to do something big and wild and different. Something with water!” said choreographer Alexander Ekman and filled the Main Stage at the Oslo Opera House with masses of water. In A Swan Lake, his full-length work created for the Norwegian National Ballet, the dancers are joined on stage by actors, a soprano, musicians and 1.000 rubber ducks.
Alexander Ekman is an internationally acclaimed choreographer, recognised and sought after for his unique ability to pair wit and playfulness. With a score by Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson and costumes by Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov, A Swan Lake takes a fresh look at Tchaikovsky’s ballet of all ballets.(Cat.No. 109323)
