Swan Lake

Fifty of Russia’s brightest ballet stars will perform the timeless tale of Swan Lake accompanied by one of Tchaikovsky’s most famous scores. Inspired by Russian folk tales, the four-act story follows Odette, a princess who has been turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse that can only be broken by her finding eternal love. The Moscow-based company, founded by former prima ballerina of the Bolshoi Theatre Ballet, Maya Plissetskaya, will perform the original choreography created over a century ago. The Performing Arts Center will host a free pre-concert lecture at 7:15 p.m. prior to both performances.
