Featuring live music played by The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle

Throughout the centuries of classical ballet, no work more completely defines the art form than Swan Lake. It tells the story of a princess who is turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse, the prince who falls in love with her, and the evil sorcerer’s daughter who lures the prince into being unfaithful.

This epic story of love and longing soars to ethereal heights with Tchaikovsky’s immortal score. Artistic Director Robert Weiss uses the beautifully illustrated version of this story by Austrian artist and writer Lisbeth Zwerger as the template for his ballet.

Weiss “stripped down the ballet and delicately built it up again to a scale appropriate for his company. The result: an emotionally rich production performed with joy by skillful dancers.”
