There are no sorcery or supernatural events in Fredrik Rydman´s interpretation of this Tchaikovsky classic. It is set in the present and Rothbart uses drugs to gain and keep control over his surroundings. The swans in Rydman’s production are prostitutes in white furs and high heeled shiny hooker boots, all completely dependent on Rothbart’s protection and the heroine 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 just like in the original? How does the story end this time?
In this production Rydman not only uses the music of Tchaikovsky but also work, that was originally composed for the show by a host of Swedish and international pop and rock writers.
Rydman is best known in his capacity as a founding member of the successful Swedish dance company Bounce with which he created and toured ten productions around the World and generated 5-star reviews from influential newspapers such as the Guardian and the Times.
