[333E11— SWAN LAKE

"Hip-m «mum‘-

Galina Mezentseva

Seen at Theatre Royal, Glasgow. Visiting Playhouse, Edinburgh 16—20 Apr.

Peter Oarrell‘s version oi Swan Lake cleverly transforms Marius Pepita/Lev lvanov‘s magical tale into a

psychologicaldrama. lnthe original,

Prince Siegiried falls in love with the beautiful Odette, who has been bewltched by an evil magician. By day she is a swan, by night she resumes her human lorm. The spell can only be broken if she is promised undying

fidelity, so the magician sends his own daughter, Odile, in the guise of Odette, to extract a conflicting promise from the unknowing prince.

ln Darrell‘s version, a young, romantic Prince Siegfried is beguiled by his friend Benno, who introduces him to opium and the beautiful, but unsuitable Odile. Theiamous swan scenes are Siegfried‘s tevered hallucinations, induced by opium, which reinforce his naive devotion to thetriendly Odile.

Tailor-madeforthe Scottish Ballet for its centenary revival in 1977, this version oi Swan Lake is especially suited to a company oi its limited size and scope. With two guest dancers oi adequate stature to take on the leading role of Odile/Odette, the best dancers from the Scottish Ballet fulfil largely cameo roles within their range. One or two shaky performances are offset by several spirited and skilful ones.

Augmented by imaginative, bold set design, the four acts hang together well, driven more by the subtle plot and Tchaikovsky‘s magnificent score than by the dancers' skill. (Jo Roe)
