A Mesmerising Night Of Candlelit Ballet Is Coming To Dublin

You’ve seen candlelight concerts. You’ve seen ballet. But you’ve never seen anything quite like Candlelight Ballet.

Few things can improve Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky’s incomparable ballet. However, we think we may just have found a way. The lovely folks of Fever are hosting some utterly enchanting nights of candlelit ballet this summer – with performances scheduled for June 28, July 13 and August 22 – making for unforgettable display of music and dance. With a string quartet, professional ballet dancers, and a beautiful venue bathed in candlelight, it might just be the classiest date you’ve ever been on. Tickets are on sale now, so grab them before they’re gone!

In the gilded heart of the magnificent Christ Church Cathedral (June 28 & July 13), a night of music and movement will unfold, as the dancers seem to be ferried along by the stirring music of Tchaikovsky, Strauss, and other famed composers.

And, due to demand, a new date has been added at the historic Smock Alley Theatre (August 22). Smock Alley dates all the way back to 1662, and after moving back to its original location in 2012, is now lovingly referred to as “Dublin’s Oldest Newest Theatre”. Now once again a hub of art and creativity, candlelight attendees are sure to be taken by the venue’s tale as they sway to the mesmerising sounds of Tchaikovsky.

You’ll be treated to a ballet performance from Swan Lake, with flickering candlelight proving the ideal backdrop for the ballet. Really, we can’t think of a better way to spend an evening than with a magical evening of dance unfolding before you…

Organisers are taking every precaution to keep guests safe and socially distanced during the performance, and the candles will be flameless – all of which will allow you to sit back in peace, and be enchanted by the music and dance of arguably the world’s greatest ballet!
