Regarded by many as the pinnacle of classical ballet, Swan Lake opens on Valentine’s Day for four performances only. Xu Yan and Li Wentao, guest artists from the National Ballet of China, will share the stage with our incredible dancers, furthering the connections forged on our 2015 tour to China.
Featuring a spirited prince, beautiful swan queen, and evil sorcerer, this timeless tale of the struggle between good and evil has captivated ballet audiences for over 125 years. Tchaikovsky’s lush score and moonlit images of impossible grace weave together to create an unforgettable story of passion, illusion, and mystery.
