Love Story Performed By International Stars

The Royal Czech Ballet will visit Australia for the first time in September/October with Swan Lake – arguably the world's most loved classical ballet.


The Royal Czech Ballet company comprises elite dancers from Europe, including Italy, Moldova and Ukraine and was formed in the Czech Republic in 2008.

Artistic Director and Company Founder Andrey Scharaev is delighted that the company has the opportunity to present this magnificent ballet to local audiences.

"In this difficult time for everyone, when there is a conflict in Ukraine, we want to bring good through our art. We have an international company with dancers from different European countries, including Ukraine. The theatre is something that has always united people and always will do," said Mr Scharaev.

Set to the magnificent score of Tchaikovsky, Swan Lake is the most romantic of all the classical ballets. This superb piece is presented in two acts and follows the original storyline with traditional choreographic revisions by Marius Pepita.

Swan Lake is Prince Siegfried's love story, who falls in love with Odette. Odette is under a spell, where she is a swan by day and turns into a woman at night. The spell can only be broken by a man who will pledge his love forever.

It is a story where the virtues of love and forgiveness ultimately conquer evil and betrayal. Swan Lake, performed by the Royal Czech Ballet, can be enjoyed at the Civic Theatre in Newcastle on Sunday 23 October, with two performances - 2pm and 7pm.

The performances offer ballet enthusiasts their first opportunity since the Covid-19 pandemic to enjoy an international ballet company visiting our part of the world and is one not to be missed. For tickets, visit
