“We’ll present this iconic ballet in its truest, purest form. I hope you’ll be thrilled by the drama, the virtuosic dancing, and of course, mesmerized by Tchaikovsky’s exquisite score.”Angel Corella
This season we premiere a traditional Swan Lake, complete with the evil Von Rothbart presiding over his flock of maiden swans in a dark, lakeside glen. Perhaps love does not conquer all?
One of the ballet world’s most celebrated works comes to life at the Academy of Music stage as Angel Corella presents his re-staging of Marius Petipa’s Swan Lake. Dazzling costumes and a sumptuous Tchaikovsky score illuminate ballet’s greatest love story of the young Prince Siegfried and his love for the Swan Queen, Odette. Cursed to live the life of a swan by day and a human by night, Odette’s only hope of breaking the evil spell is a declaration of true love.
