BALLET which is tu tu good to miss is coming to Somerset.

The Russian State Ballet and Opera House will be appearing at the Octagon on Tuesday, October 16.

This ballet is directed and choreographed by former Bolshoi Ballet Soloist, Konstantin Uralsky.

Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so closely that one can easily be mistaken for the other. It is a compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is turned into a swan by an evil curse.

Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman he is instantly captivated – but will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under?

From the opulent splendour of the palace ballroom to the mystical moonlit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, Swan Lake has it all and is the perhaps the most perfect romantic ballet of all time, Swan Lake captures, like no other, the full range of human emotions – from hope to despair, from terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.

Tickets cost £35 adult; £32 concessions; Children £21.
