An hour-long, specially adapted version of Swan Lake is now available English National Ballet’s digital platform.

Created as part of ENB’s My First Ballet series for children, it features a narrator to help young viewers follow the story and is performed by students of English National Ballet School.

The production was recorded when it toured the UK in 2018 and features choreography by Antonio Castilla and dramaturgy by Lou Cope. The lead role of Odette is performed by Chloe Keneally, who subsequently joined ENB as an Artist.

Alongside the production itself, there are a series of resources available to download for free alongside the production designed for use before, during or after the performance.
