Scottish Ballet has commissioned award-winning, international choreographer, David Dawson, to createa new Swan Lake. David Dawson’s work is visceral, daring and always pushes dancers to their limits. 

“David always looks to push the boundaries of classical ballet, and I know that his production of an iconic story will be a thoughtful, fresh and very bold addition to our repertoire" Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director, Christopher Hampson

David was recently appointed Associate Artist of Dutch National Ballet. His work challenges and extends the realms of classical technique and his brave stagings have made him a choreographer in demand across the globe.

A world premiere tour, this new commission will ensure that a new generation will be engrossed by the timeless story of Swan Lake in a style and choreographic language relevant to the 21st century.
