Tchaikovsky meets street dance. Created by Swedish choreographer Fredrik Rydman, Swan Lake Reloaded uses the remixed music of the Tchaikovsky original combined with a host of Swedish and international pop and rock writers.
There are no sorcery or supernatural events in Rydman's interpretation of this Tchaikovsky classic. The story of Prince Siegfried and Odette is transported to modern times, where Rothbart uses drugs to gain and keep control over his surroundings. The swans in Rydman's production are prostitutes in white furs and shiny high heeled boots; all completely dependent on Rothbart's protection and the drugs he supplies them with.
In the struggle between good and evil, the desire for drugs and love plays a central role. Can true love break the spell as it did in the original? How does the story end this time?
