The setting of Swan Lake moves inside in Christopher Wheeldon's definitive contemporary version of Swan Lake, returning for the 2018/19 season. Blending the line between fantasy and reality, this Degas inspired production looks to the history of the original Swan Lake, and whilst incorporating fresher, 21st Century themes.

Frankie Valli

November 3, 2018

The world first fell in love with Frankie Valli when he led one of the most successful Doo-Wop bands in musical history, The Four Seasons. His trademark falsetto and astonishing 3-octave range stood the group apart from their contemporaries and they've sold over 100 million records to date. Hugely popular in the 60's, Valli has enjoyed a resurgence of popularity in recent years with the release of 'Jersey Boys', the smash hit Broadway musical based on his career.
