Are you “Insanewich” enough to join us?

Swan Lake – November

One of the central works of the classical ballet canon, and one of the most enduringly resonant and deeply affecting of all works of theatrical art, Swan Lake has enthralled audiences since its premiere in Moscow in 1877. Set to a timeless and famously evocative score by Tchaikovsky, the ballet is marked by a thematic and stylistic dynamism that embraces the fantastic and mythic while remaining rooted in the most universal of human emotions.

Swan Lake retains the captivating, 19th-century fairy-tale quality of the ballet while grounding the narrative in a richly suggestive earthiness that accentuates the tension between the sensual and the ethereal, the natural and the supernatural. The emotional and thematic complexities that are revealed in choreographer James Kudelka’s re-telling of the story are heightened and complemented by Santo Loquasto’s exquisite and vibrant sets and costumes, both conveying the ballet’s tragic beauty and powerful effect with consummate artistry.
