My First Ballet – Swan Lake, New Theatre Oxford

My First Ballet – Swan Lake, New Theatre Oxford

If you have a child who loves ballet the My First Ballet series are an excellent first taste of the magical world of ballet. I took both my girls last year with a group of friends and they absolutely loved it!

Enjoy one of the most famous ballets of all time together, in this beautifully adapted new version for children aged three upwards.

The evil magician Rothbart has turned the beautiful princess Odette into a swan; only at night can she return to human form. Will Prince Siegfried be able to save her or will he fall for Rothbart’s sorcery?

This shortened version with Tchaikovsky’s wonderful music is the perfect introduction to the magic of ballet for young children, and a fantastic family day out.

This unique collaboration between English National Ballet and English National Ballet School is performed by second year students of English National Ballet School.

Since its creation in 2012, over 250,000 people have enjoyed our My First Ballet series.

If you fancy something to eat while you’re there are a number of restaurants nearby including Ask Italian, Yo Sushi and Jamie’s Italian!
