They're back! The JSLN ballet present 'Odile'.
Odile is a fresh look at the Swan Lake story told in Niewelt’s inimitable style of dance narrative through neo classical ballet. The tale is told through the eyes of the orphaned Odile who seeks to escape from her evil uncle Rothbart into her fantasy world of beautiful swans where she is transformed into the swan queen Odette.
Niewelt’s new two act ballet uses some of Tchaikowsky’s well known music from Swan Lake as well as newly created scores promising to enthrall all audiences with his talent for storytelling without words.
Enjoy professional touring ballet on the small stage, as JSLN brings the show to Portland by popular demand!
NEW FOR 2017 - BEHIND THE SCENES TOUR!!
Make a full afternoon of your visit to the Royal Manor Theatre and for just an additional £5, join JSLN Dance Company for a behind the scenes tour at 3.00pm. Look at how a touring dance company works with theatres to bring you beautiful ballet in a small space. This workshop will take place in the auditorium before the twilight performance, our Artistic Director Sören Niewelt will talk you through how Odile was created, showing how he works with lighting effects to create his magic and how simple props can bring the tale to life. There will be a 45 minute break while the company prepare for the performance and you can enjoy a festive drink and a snack (included in behind the scenes package) before enjoying the tale of Odile, her evil uncle Rothbart and her pure alter ego Odette.
Tickets for the behind the scenes tour are sold separately.
