Swan Lake with the PBT Orchestra

  • Date: May 6 - May 15, 2022
  • Venue: Benedum Center

Classical precision, superb storytelling and Tchaikovsky’s seminal score collide to create one of ballet’s most iconic works of art. The beautiful Odette, cursed to live as a swan, meets the prince who could break the spell – but the wicked Von Rothbart has plans of his own. Artistic Director Susan Jaffe’s own acclaimed history culminates in a new restaging of Swan Lake.

Original Choreography: Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov | Staged by: Susan Jaffe | Music: P.I. Tchaikovsky
