A classical ballet masterpiece brought to life by ingenious choreographer James Kudelka. His provocative, passionate ideas and dynamic choreographic palette heighten the ballet’s mingling of sensuality and lyricism and add dark psychological complexity – renewing Swan Lake for contemporary audiences. As ethereal, graceful swans fill both the stage and our imaginations, Tchaikovsky’s glorious score and Santo Loquasto’s dramatic sets and costumes evoke a world of enduring emotional power and astonishing, singular beauty. Swan Lake will thrill you even as it sets your heart soaring.
The performances of The National Ballet of Canada at the National Arts Centre are made possible with support from Jerry and Joan Lozinski.
