Stephen Baynes has begun realising his vision of the traditional Swan Lake, which will be steeped in the 19th-century Romanticism of the original(s) and deepened by fleshed-out characterisations of key figures. For many of our dancers, dancing Swan Lake is a long-held dream. Here are our swans, courtiers and princes in action.
