Scottish Ballet has commissioned award-winning, international choreographer, David Dawson, to create a new Swan Lake. The world premiere tour will be coming to Glasgow’s Theatre Royal from the 19th of April until the 23rd of April 2016.
David Dawson’s work is visceral, daring and always pushes dancers to their limits. ‘David always looks to push the boundaries of classical ballet, and I know that his production of an iconic story will be a thoughtful, fresh and very bold addition to our repertoire.’ Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director, Christopher Hampson.
Recently appointed as the Associate Artist of Dutch National Ballet, David Dawson’s work challenges and extends the realms of classical technique and his brave stagings have made him a choreographer in demand across the globe.
