“★★★★★ Raw, raucous, redemptive, majestic, vital and empowering” Irish Times, Sara Keating, 2016

Obstructed view seating available for sale at the NAC Box Office at 50% off the regular ticket price.

Swan Lake/Loch na hEala by Irish choreographer, writer and director Michael Keegan-Dolan, is a unique and transcending interpretation of one of the most famous classical ballets. The familiar fairy tale is startlingly reimagined and set in present day Ireland, full of clamour and drama. This contemporary collision of dance, theatre and live music (by Dublin-based band Slow Moving Clouds) is known to infuse its viewers with a raw, majestic and empowering energy, rooted in the meeting of ancient folklore and the modern world.  An absolute must-see.

Note: adult themes, feather allergy alert  

Performance is approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes with no intermission.
