Keller Auditorium

Swan Lake

Adapted by Kevin Irving after Petipa/Ivanov | Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
featuring the OBT Orchestra for all performances

Is there any other ballet that has as much a hold on our collective imaginations as does Swan Lake? The sublime transcendence of choreography that has been passed down generation after generation is unmatched, and the music of Tchaikovsky is never more attuned to the struggles of the heart than in this poignant work.

Weaving together the pure classicism of the Petipa/Ivanov original that is the glowing heart of this oft-told tale, we re-animate the most beloved classical ballet of all time from the inside out, with a story meant to draw us in rather than keep us at an admiring distance. We go deeper than the Odette/Odile fantasy to focus on a young prince, ignored and left to his own devices while his older brothers fight wars and defend the kingdom. He is suddenly forced to confront a sacred responsibility thrust upon him by circumstance: it is he who will become king, and he must marry. Still prone to believe in magical beings, he is ensnared in a web of illusion – a web spun to hasten his passage to adulthood.

Come experience this world renowned ballet as you’ve never seen it before.
