Even if you’re not a big fan of ballet, chances are you’re already somewhat familiar with Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.
Composed over 1875 and 1876, Swan Lake is one of the world’s most well-known ballets, with countless productions and adaptations over the years.
Performed by the world renowned St Petersburg Ballet Theatre, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake will call Melbourne’s very own Princess Theatre home from June 20th to June 30th, 2018 following a sold-out season in London and Paris.
Heading out for an afternoon or evening at the ballet? Le Garage is proud to offer safe, clean, and convenient Princess Theatre parking, any day of the week! Book online now.

Who is Tchaikovsky?
You might know him as the guy that decided that his drums weren’t loud enough and swapped them out for live cannonfire instead.
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (try saying that 3 times) was one of the most influential composers of the romantic period. Even today, he remains one of the rockstars of the classical music world, with his works still popping up in productions big and small around the world.
Tchaikovsky’s story proves that no matter the time or era, many of the most influential artists are poorly understood in their time. While his works were a hit with the public, critics were less generous, garnering mixed receptions.
125 years after his death however, and his work has proved his early critics wrong. Even today, his music is still being appreciated by audiences around the world.
His most famous work is no doubt the spine-tingling and emotionally rousing Swan Lake production.
