Swan Lake-inspired ballet on Empire stage

ARCHE was premiered in Melbourne in 2015 - it is an innovative production that takes inspiration primarily from the age-old classic, Swan Lake.

This ballet explores and embraces much of the original narrative and some of the classical repertoire.

Director, Simon Hoy has structured this work around his unique choreographic style and has developed a score including music by Tchaikovsky, Einaudi, Arnalds, Morricone, Jeanrenaud and Elgar.

This emotionally charged production has received very positive critical reviews and is suitable for audiences everywhere.

Archè is a Greek word meaning the beginning, the principle from which all things arise and the force that explains their birth and death.

The ancient Greek philosophers sought the Archè in the four fundamental essences of the Earth: water, earth, air, fire; focusing on how they interact with each other.

The Melbourne Ballet Company will present the show at the Empire Theatre on  Wednesday, August 10 at 7.30pm.
