The Houston Ballet will perform six shows at Dubai Opera next October.

It’s a versatile venue that has played host to everything from squash tournaments to pop concerts. But the latest announcement from Dubai Opera definitely has a more classical flavour – the Houston Ballet will be bringing Swan Lake to Dubai in 2018.

The ballet will have a six show run from October 24 to 27, with tickets priced from Dhs250.

The ballet, first performed in Moscow in 1877, tells the story of Odette, a beautiful maiden who is transformed into a swan by an evil knight, and the prince who swears his eternal love for her.

The performance will be accompanied by a live orchestra, and put on by the Houston Ballet. The fifth largest professional ballet company in the US, the Houston Ballet features 59 dancers and produces more than 85 performances each year.

Tickets for the production will go on sale at midday on Thursday December 7.
