The State Ballet Theatre of Ukraine presents
Don’t miss Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece and one of the world’s most popular ballets of all time. Internationally acclaimed The State Ballet Theatre of Ukraine returns to the North Shore Center for this sparkling performance filled with spectacular sets and enchanting choreography. The entire family will love this magical experience.
Swan Lake tells the love story of Prince Siegfried, who on a hunting trip encounters a flock of swans, falls in love with the Swan Queen, Odette, and swears his allegiance and undying love to her. As a result of a curse by the evil sorcerer Baron von Rothbart, Odette can only take human form between midnight and daybreak. Only faithful, true love can break the spell. This love is expressed in the White Swan pas de deux, danced to one of the most familiar sections of the music, and is both gentle and tender. During this pas de deux, Odette’s timidness and sense of fear of the Prince transitions to acceptance of his love and hope for the future.
The libretto is based on the script by Vladimir Begichev and Vasiliy Geltser.
