The Melbourne Ballet Company proudly presents Archè
An original ballet based on the classic Swan Lake.
Archè, meaning the principle from which all things arise, isan innovative production thattakes its inspiration primarilyfrom the age-old classic, Swan Lake, with inspiration taken fromThe Greek Myth – Leda and The Swan, and The Dying Swan.
It explores and embraces much of the original narrative and some of the classical repertoire.
Director at the MBC, Simon Hoy, has structured the production to reflect his unique choreographic style and has linked this with a powerful musical score comprising music excerpts drawn from Tchaikovsky, Einaudi, Arnalds, Morricone, Jean-Renaud and Elgar.
The end result is an emotionally charged production, which has already received extremely positive critical acclaim and is suitable for audiences everywhere.
