Appetite Trip to see Swan Lake at The Royal Opera House

Sat 28 Mar

Join Appetite on another very special day trip to the Royal Opera House, London this March for The Royal Ballet’s magnificent production of Swan Lake. An excursion of royal magnitude with your family and friends!

One of the best-known and most-loved classical ballets, Swan Lake is a core part of The Royal Ballet’s repertoire.  This new production created in 2018 tells the eternal tale of doomed love with an intoxicating mix of spectacle and passion!
