THE paradigm of timeless elegance will take to the stage in Rhyl this autumn.

After the sell-out performances of Nutcracker last year, Russian National Ballet returns to the Pavilion theatre with Swan Lake in October.

As the leaves begin to turn golden, gaze in wonder at one of Tchaikovsky’s best works and perhaps the most famous ballet of all time, featuring some of the art form's most memorable music and breath-taking dance.

Swan Lake is a tale of two young women, Odette and Odilie, who resembles each other so strikingly one can easily be mistaken for the other.

It is the compelling legend of a tragic romance in which a princess, Odette, is turned into a swan by an evil curse. Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful young woman he is instantly captivated – will his love prove strong enough to break the evil spell that she is under?

Full of mystery and romance, Swan Lake continues to capture the imagination of new generations over the years and it still attracts worldwide audiences, young and old. Indeed, it is nigh impossible to discuss ballet without conjuring images of the sheer magic of Tchaikovsky’s magnum opus and it's irresistible score.

Bringing peerless expertise to this unparalleled masterwork, the Russian National Ballet is a family run company that has more than 10 years of experience specialising in classical Russian ballet.

For a wonderful evening out filled with memories which to cherish long after the final curtain falls, head to the Pavilion on Friday, October 18 at 7.30pm.
