Odile is a fresh look at the Swan Lake story told through neo-classical ballet, in JSLN Dance’s inimitable style of dance-narrative, under the artistic directorship of Soren Niewelt.
The tale is told through the eyes of the orphaned Odile who has been mistreated by her evil uncle, Rothbart, and seeks escape from his cruelty through her subconscious alter ego Odette.
Niewelt’s new two-act ballet uses some of Tchaikovsky’s well-known music from Swan Lake as well as newly-created scores promising to enthral all audiences with his talent for storytelling without words.
The talented performers from JSLN Dance Company first visited The Mission Theatre on their debut UK tour in June 2016 with a visually stunning, captivating and extremely entertaining triple-bill of dance shows: Variations of Pointe. The company is delighted to return to Bath and The Mission with Odile, Niewelt’s first full-length ballet, which promises to delight audience members of all ages.
