Il Lago dei Cigni at Teatro Olimpico in Rome
2-3 Nov. This production of Swan Lake, which is choreographed by Fredy Franzutti and is danced by his company Balletto del Sud, returns to Teatro Olimpico over the weekend of 2-3 November.
One of Italy's best known choreographers and ballet companies places this Tchaikovsky classic in Bavaria at the end of the 19th century.
The work is set to the background of Neuschwanstein castle, Ludwig II's fairy-tale palace, which was built as a retreat and in honour of Richard Wagner. Ludwig was eventually declared mad and deposed.
