Circa's Duck Pond Tickets

Royal Festival Hall

Ballet and circus collide for a Christmas show like no other in this inventive reimagining of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. Best for age 8+.

Ballet and Circus Collide with Circa’s Duck Pond Tickets

Experience the magic of Swan Lake like never before at the Southbank Centre this Christmas, as contemporary circus troupe Circa bring their “exhilarating” (ArtsHub) and off-beat Duck Pond to Royal Festival Hall for a limited series of performances. Stunts, sequins, feathers, physical comedy and the ultimate romantic ballet combine for a show that delivers wintry delights for all ages.

About Circa’s Duck Pond

We all know the story of Swan Lake: a beautiful princess cursed to transform into a swan; a handsome prince who can break the spell with true love’s kiss; and an evil sorcerer who will do anything to stop the couple from succeeding. With a gorgeous score from Tchaikovsky and immaculate choreography, this ballet is one of the world’s most beloved and a staple of Christmas entertainment.

Circa takes the well-known tale and adds their own eye-popping, cheeky and exuberant spin - expect feathers to fly as beautiful swans, a hapless prince, and a cheeky flipper-wearing army of ducks burst off the stage in a flurry of circus skills. Touching and funny, Duck Pond sees comedy, aerial performance and classic ballet combine for a “hugely entertaining” (Limelight) live experience that audiences of all ages will adore.

Who are the Circa circus troupe?

Australian circus troupe Circa is one of the world’s leading performance companies. Founded in 2004 in Brisbane, their signature boundary-pushing physicality and exciting contemporary energy has breathed exciting new life into some of the biggest classic shows, along with brand-new work.

They have performed in more than 45 countries to 2 million people, and with standing ovations across six continents, have proven themselves “a revolution in the spectacle of circus” (Les Echos).
