Perhaps the most recognized ballet of all time, Swan Lake makes its highly-anticipated return to New Ballet after stunning audiences in 2017. This immortal love story presents a wicked sorcerer who captures the beautiful Princess Odette and turns her into a swan. His evil spell can only be broken when a young prince pledges his love and marries her. Should he betray her, she will remain a swan forever.
Choreography: Dalia Rawson after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov
Music: Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky
Also featuring a special performance of MY VERY FIRST BALLET: SWAN LAKE, with reduced ticket prices and a run time of shortly under an hour, perfect for families with toddlers or young children. My Very First Ballet: Swan Lake introduces the swans, Odette, and the Prince at the enchanted lake, but does not tell the entire Swan Lake story.
