Vienna Festival Ballet celebrates their 34th anniversary with a UK tour from March to June 2014, with the classic: Swan Lake - Music by Tchaikovsky

Whilst he’s out hunting, the Prince Siegfried meets with a flock of swans led by a Swan Queen who is under the evil spell of a magician, Baron Rothbart. He falls in love with the Queen of the Swans and tries to free them all. However, the magician has a few tricks up his sleeve. Will everything turn out well for the Prince and the Queen of the Swans?

Swan Lake will never lose its popularity. An intense theatrical experience, it is one of the greatest love stories ever to be staged. This production offers imaginative, glamorous costumes, and beautiful sets which project colour and vitality to enhance the skill of the dancers, choreographers and the composer. It has all the essential ingredients to appeal to a wide audience base from youngsters seeing ballet live on stage for the first time, to anybody who is simply looking for an innovative show which tells a beautiful story through music and dance.

The Company

The celebrated Austrian dancer Peter Mallek founded the company after his illustrious career as a dancer of international renown, in 1980. Now in their 34th year of producing quality ballet productions, the company continues to experience remarkable success and perform great classical ballets all over the world. VFB are known for their beautiful and lavish hand-made costumes and head dresses. Their productions have all the elegance and extravagance associated with the best of ballet.

VFB are celebrated for the continued freshness of their dancing casts, and the strength of their corps - the flock of swans - is sure to be highlighted. VFB have top-talented dancers including graduates from the Royal Ballet School, British, Australian and Italian soloists, and guest stars from Vienna and South Africa.
