A unique collaboration between Shanghai Ballet and England’s top choreographer Derek Deane

The Greatest Swan Lake in the World from China will spread its wings again in 2017. At the initiative of Stardust Theatre, producer of this impressive ballet fest, Derek Deane has rehearsed his version of Swan Lake with the Shanghai Ballet!

Instead of 16 swans, this production will bring 48 swans on to the stage. The decision to ask Derek Deane for this task, was an easy one. The dance expert has a great reputation when it comes to creating grand arena productions with the English National Ballet. His Swan Lake was, amongst other venues, performed in the Royal Albert Hall.

The premiere took place in a sold out Grand Theatre, in Shanghai. It was a sensation, which has already managed to attract more international attention. Derek Deane’s achievement with the 48 Chinese ballerina’s is absolutely magical. With his choreography he has added a beautiful new chapter to Swan Lake, without affecting the authenticity of this ballet classic.

The stunning Chinese ballerina’s form an enchanting, homogenous whole, which in its charisma and perfection are equal to that of the Bolshoi, Mariinsky Ballet or The Royal Ballet in London.

Enjoy this impressive and wonderful ballet in Stadsschouwburg Antwerpen.

Tickets: 39, 49, 59 and 69 euros.
