Why see World Ballet Series - Swan Lake?

The World's Most Treasured Ballet

With over 50 dancers representing 10 countries, the World Ballet Series is committed to staging the world's most cherished ballets, retaining the grand style, costumes, and sets that help to make them magical experiences for everyone! With Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score and iconic choreography, there is no finer example than Swan Lake, presented by the company on tour.

What is the story?

Dashing Prince Siegfried is urged by his mother to marry soon. She tells him he must make his choice at the upcoming royal ball. In defiance, the young man heads out to the forest to hunt where he witnesses an event that will change his life forever - the transformation of a simple swan into a beautiful woman - Odette, who is under the spell of a wicked sorcerer. The only way to break this spell is for one who has never loved before to love her. However, the sorcerer has his own designs on the Kingdom, and plots to get it with a secret weapon that looks remarkably like the innocent Odette...

I went with a friend who had never been to a live ballet and we had a marvelous time. ... Read more



To those who do not know, the Dying Swan (or "death of the swan per Patricia's review) is NOT a dance in Swan Lake. It is not part of Swan Lake, but an individual solo piece. It was never part of swan lake so it was not "removed." ... Read more
