Competition: Win tickets to see Swan Lake

17 May 2016 by Felicity

410 x 231 MusicalsThe Scottish Ballet’s breath-taking production of Swan Lake is headed for the Liverpool Empire and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away.

This modern retelling of the classic ballet, which runs at the Empire from Wed 1 – Sat 4 June, swaps tutus and curses for a sultry, passionate love story. 

We have a pair of tickets up for grabs for the performance taking place on Wednesday 1st June at 7.30pm. In addition to this, the winner will receive access to a VIP drinks reception – taking place in the piano bar during the interval – along with a programme and an official Swan Lake poster, signed by principle dancer Sophie Martin (Odette).

To be in with a chance of winning, you’ll need to answer this question:

Which composer wrote the original music for Swan Lake?

Email your answer, along with your name, email address and telephone number to by midnight on Wednesday 25 May. We’ll email the winner to let them know that they’ve been successful by 5pm on Thursday 26 May.

Good luck!
