Re-Watch: Swan Lake Reloaded

Swan Lake Reloaded is a dance show by Fredrik Rydman. It’s a combination of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky‘s Swan Lake with modern street dance. [I saw it a second time: here’s my first review.]

Plot:
Based on the classic Swan Lake, the show gives the old tale a new spin: A young prince who has grown tired with his partying lifestyle falls in love with a whore who is being controlled by her pimp through drugs.

The second time around this show was just as brilliant as the first time around though interestingly enough in a completely different way for me. It’s fascinating how these things go sometimes.
