Following Swan Lake’s disastrous 1877 Moscow premiere, which devastated Tchaikovsky, the ballet went on to triumph in St Petersburg in 1885 with new choreography by Petipa and Ivanov, confirming its composer’s genius and creating a worldwide success which continues to attract choreographers such as Matthew Bourne. This course is fully illustrated with slides, archive film clips and DVDs.

I love going to Dillington. Where is there like it? Arriving is like a decompression, a deep breath of pure air. The programmes of courses, concerts and talks are exceptional. The company is delightful; the food and the ambiance add to the pleasure; and all set in a magical landscape which seems to me a secret Somerset paradise. In a world of increasing dislocation, Dillington has a real sense of its place in the world.
