One of the first shows of 2017 will be dedicated to a classic dance performance at the Cambridge Corn Exchange.

Swan Lake, performed by The Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet, will take to the stage on January 1 – a tragic tale of love and betrayal with enchanting musical solos.

Having just finished their successful premiere tour, the group’s spectacular version of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a perfect introduction to ballet and will showcase the very best seeing it live.

The story follows Prince Siegfried and his love, Odette, who is tricked by an evil sorcerer, Von Rothbart.

Appearing as a swan and then turning into a beautiful woman, Odette tells the prince she can only be saved if he swears eternal fidelity to her.
