NAC Presentation

Ballet of ballets!

The majesty of the royal court, eerie moonlight on a mist-shrouded lake, a mysterious swan princess, a handsome prince, an evil sorcerer, and a curse that can only be broken by the power of true love. Swan Lake is lyrical, romantic and breathtakingly beautiful. Choreographer Aaron S. Watkin, one of Canada’s most admired dance exports and Artistic Director of the prestigious Semperoper Ballett Dresden, makes a very personal return to the original sources in this sumptuous, embellished vision of the beloved classic.
