The Royal Opera House's 2012/13 Live Cinema Season opens with Anthony Dowell's production of Swan Lake, created for The Royal Ballet in 1987.

Surely the greatest of all Romantic ballets, Swan Lake is a perfect synthesis of choreography and music. Though Tchaikovsky did not live to see the work become a success, his first ballet score is now synonymous with ballet itself, inspiring generations of dancers and crossing over into popular culture.
