THE SWAN OF SALEN

On the north shore of Loch Sunart, south of Salen, lies the Iron Age hill fort of Dun Ghallain. It is this place that is the setting for the tale of the Swan of Salen.

The Swan of Salen is a multimedia adaptation of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake ballet. Set to a Gaelic folk tale, the performance features a unique blend of Tchaikovsky's music and traditional melodies played live on three clàrsachs, and a brand new choreography by Deborah Norris (balletfolk.com) projected behind the musicians. 

Other collaborators include tradition bearer Mary-Ann Kennedy and videography team Olive and Thistle.

The performance is set to premiere in the autumn of 2023.

We are incredibly grateful to Creative Scotland, Glasgow CAN and the UK Harp Association for supporting this project.
