Anthea Seah, Goh Shou Yi and Marcus Foo culminating 3 years of process, research and collaboration in the triple bill showcase liTHE 2019.
liTHE is T.H.E Second Company’s annual showcase featuring the diverse backgrounds,
bodies and perspectives of more than 20 passion-driven youth dancers, as well as its burgeoning in-house choreographic talent.

As a grand finale to Singapore Dance Theatre’s (SDT) Pride and Passion season 2019, we will be presenting one of the world’s most famous and well-loved ballet of all time, Swan Lake.
With an ever-compelling story and technically demanding choreography, this is a performance not to be missed! A classic tale for everyone, Swan Lake offers a timeless story and a spectacle unlike any other. With exquisite costumes and enchanting moments, this classic masterpiece remains to be the favourite ballet of many children and adults. A timeless jewel in the crown by the legendary choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, Swan Lake is well established in SDT’s repertoire.
The story begins with Prince Siegfried who sees an amazing swan while out hunting. As he takes aim to shoot, the swan turns into a beautiful woman and the prince falls madly in love with her. The woman, Odette, tells the prince that she is a princess who has come under the spell of an evil sorcerer called Rothbart.
Odette is a swan by day, and human by night; the spell can only be broken if a noble prince swears eternal fidelity to her, otherwise she will remain a swan forever. At his 21st birthday at the royal palace, the prince accidentally proposes to Odile (Rothbart’s daughter), believing that she is really Odette, as he was cast under a spell. Princess Odette, who appears at the party, witnesses Siegfried declaring his love for Odile and feels doomed.
The prince returns to Odette at the lakeside and she forgives him. The prince defeats Rothbart in a battle which finally releases Odette and all the swan maidens from the spell to become women once again.
The music for Swan Lake was composed by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, one of the greatest Russian composers of all time.
