Will Prince Siegfried break the spell entrapping the lovely Swan Queen? Technically demanding and emotionally riveting, Tchaikovsky’s classic fairy tale ballet is performed by an elegant company of Russia’s most accomplished dancers.


Free Curtain Warmer | 7pm | Patricia McAndrew:  Known for her writings about ballet and her service as a former board member of the Ballet Guild of the LV, McAndrew discusses a fairy tale about transformation. Long before Harry Potter, there was the Russian folktale Odette, about a princess who was turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. It served as the inspiration for Tchaikovsky's magical ballet.
