Swan Lake Reloaded
Smooth/Arts  |  March 22, 2020

There are no sorcery or supernatural events in Fredrik Rydman's interpretation of this Tchaikovsky classic. It is set in the present and Rothbart uses drugs to gain and keep control over his surroundings. The swans in Rydman's production are prostitutes in white furs and high-heeled shiny hooker boots, all completely dependent on Rothbart's protection and the heroine he supplies them with. In the struggle between good and evil, the desire for drugs and love plays a central role. Can true love break the 'spell' just like in the original? How does the story end this time? In this production Rydman not only uses the music of Tchaikovsky but also specially composed works of a host of Swedish and international pop and rock writers. The show opened in Stockholm in December 2011 and has been on tour since February 2013, so far to sold-out seasons in Stockholm, Essen, Berlin, Vienna, Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich, Gothenburg, Hamburg, Paris, Geneva, Linz, Milano, Moscow and London.
