What makes this production of the Swan Lake unique, is that instead of regular ensemble of 16 swans, there are 48 swans in Deane’s production. The choice of ballet maestro Derek Deane was also the most obvious. Derek Deane, renowned for his work with English National Ballet, has a tremendous reputation in the field of big arena productions. His Swan Lake production was among others to see at the Royal Albert Hall.
The performance was so moving and really gave me goose bumps. The 48 swans graciously and in sync fluttered around the stage as being lightweight and moving like real swans. It was a spectacle I have never witnessed before on a stage, with beautiful lighting adding an enchanting atmosphere to it.
