Queensland Ballet’s Swan Lake – Cairns

7 July @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm AEST

- $37 – $42

5.30pm gates open

7.30pm show starts

 

Young maiden Odette and her friends are victims of a terrible spell that turns them into swans by day, and only at night do they return to human form. To break the spell, the beautiful Odette must find eternal love.

 

After celebrating his birthday, Prince Siegfried comes across a lake where, at midnight, Odette transforms from a swan into a beautiful woman. Siegfried falls in love instantly but is tricked and betrayed by the seductive Black Swan, Odile.

 

True love prevails in this powerful story set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score. Ben Stevenson’s Swan Lake was a sellout sensation in Brisbane — now this spectacular ballet tours to five major centres in regional Queensland.

 

Munro Martin Parklands (MMP) is Cairns’ newest community gathering place complete with an outdoor performance space. The Parklands boast tropical plantings, vine covered pergolas and arbours and an open-air plaza to encourage passive, casual use of the facility. If rain is forecast on an event day please ensure you dress accordingly and bring a raincoat. Umbrellas are allowed in the venue but are not to be used during the performance as it blocks the view of other patrons.

 

Please note:

  • BYO blankets or chairs
  • BYO food / picnics and soft drinks only
  • Strictly no BYO alcohol, a licensed bar is available
  • Food available for purchase
