Three Swan Lakes are winging to the UK, and these versions are no turkeys, says Clifford Bishop for The Sunday Times


Swan Lake is the itch choreographers cannot stop scratching. Parts of Hamlet aside, it may be the most instantly recognisable piece of theatre on earth, the “favourite” ballet of those who have never seen one, a money-spinning signature dish reheated and served so often that, for regular dance-goers, it can become more Boxing Day turkey than magic swan. For anyone inside dance, this iconic status is a problem, an irritant, an invitation to tinker. This is the immovable object everybody has to butt against, the timeless classic that makes revisionists of them all.
