Swan Lake - A fairytale ballet on ice

This Christmas, the sumptuous classical ballet Swan Lake will be showing at the Liseberg ice rink.

This fairytale in four acts has all the elements of a thrilling love story: A prince, Siegfried, who falls in love with Odette, an enchanted princess, and a wicked sorcerer, Rothbart, who has bewitched Odette to turn into a beautiful white swan every morning at sunrise. Can true love break the evil spell?

The whole area around the stage will be part of the fairytale. Besides the scenery and decorations at the ice rink itself, the atmosphere will be enhanced with projection mapping, a technology used to turn objects into a display surface for video projection and lighting.

Christmas at Liseberg and the Swan Lake ice ballet open on 16 November.

Performance times: weekdays 19.00, Saturdays 16.30 & 19.00 and sundays kl 17.00.
