ABOUT THE SHOW
Perhaps the most recognized ballet of all time, Swan Lake makes its highly-anticipated return to Kansas City Ballet after breaking box office records in 2016. This immortal love story involves a wicked sorcerer who captures the beautiful Princess Odette and turns her into a swan. His evil spell can only be broken when a young prince pledges his love and marries her. Should he betray her, she will remain a swan forever.
Choreography: Devon Carney after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov
Music: Peter I. Tchaikovsky
Music performed by Kansas City Symphony
