Why See Pacific Northwest Ballet - Swan Lake?
A true classic
Considering that Swan Lake's first outing in Bolshi, Moscow was given less than complimentary notices, ('neither the ballet nor it's ballerina were well received'), Swan Lake has gone on to conquer the world, becoming the must see of any company's repertoire, as the enchanting story and Tchaikovsky's sublime score blend together to create magic.
Don't miss Pacific Northwest Ballet's incredible recital, with choreography by Kent Stowell that subtly incorporates innovation, whilst retaining the dreamy Ivanov and Pepita staging that is so beloved.
Odette's tale,The Story of Swan Lake.
Dashing, but pressured Prince Siegfried is urged by his mother to marry soon and bids that he chooses a spouse the following night, at the royal ball. Frustrated, he goes hunting with his friends, and after becoming separated, is stunned when one of the swans he marked for prey, transforms into a beautiful maiden.
He falls deeply in love, but she is terrified of him. Upon winning his trust, she divulges that she and her companions are victims of an evil spell, cast by a sorcerer Von Rothbart, who traps them on the lake and in their swan form, only becoming human for at night. The only way to break this spell is for one who has never loved to love her, The Swan Queen.
Prince Siegfried sets out to break the spell and rescue Odette, pitting him against he evil sorcerer in a this wonderful story of magic and romance...
