This Candlelight series will offer you a new interpretation of some of ballet’s most popular pieces, this time illuminated by hundreds of candles. This spring, Candlelight Ballet will pay tribute to one of the most important Russian composers that has left a great impact on music and ballet.
The program for Candlelight Ballet featured selections of Swan Lake. These performances are set to be seen at the eight-century-old Manchester Cathedral, along the Irwell River.
Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake will permeate the city of Manchester this spring. Perhaps the most moving and the most widely performed Tchaikovsky, you’ll get to live it under the gentle glow of candlelight.
The Manchester Cathedral’s history is outlined by resilience, which makes it the perfect location for Swan Lake. You can catch ballet performances of the “Odette Variation”, “Pas de deux White Swan”, and “The Black Swan pas de deux” among others. Ballet dancers will be announced soon, so stay on the lookout!
Candlelight Ballet brings the magic of a live musical experience, combined with incredibly talented ballet performances and extremely difficult choreography. All in awe-inspiring locations never before used for this purpose in Manchester.
At Manchester Cathedral, you’ll be teleported to a fairytale world this spring. Tchaikovsky’s booming music is masterfully played by a talented string quartet, as the ballet dancers arabesque their way around the stage, under flickering candlelight. This really is the ideal way to spend the night.
