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 thoroughly enjoyed the two times that I've come to speak at Dillington House. I found the audiences to be engaged, receptive and welcoming. Somerset needs a venue like this, I hope it goes from strength to strength and I'd love to come back and speak again.
