See One of the Most Enduring Works in Russian Ballet, Swan Lake, on Tuesday, October 15th

Those faithful to the tradition of Swan Lake must see this new production courtesy of the Russian Ballet Theatre. On Tuesday, October 15th, Abraham Chavez Center welcomes a new production of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s timeless classic. Don’t miss it!

Swan Lake is a timeless love story that mixes magic, tragedy, and romance into four acts. It features Prince Siegfried and a lovely swan princess named Odette. Under the spell of a sorcerer, Odette spends her days as a swan swimming on a lake of tears and her nights in her beautiful human form. The couple quickly falls in love. Like most fairytales, things are not easy, and the sorcerer has more tricks in store for the smitten couple. Will Odette end up with her Prince in the end?

Choreographer Nadezhda Kalinina lovingly retouches the oldest St. Petersburg version of the ballet, adding her vision and something more that will undoubtedly leave audiences flushed with emotion. Russian Ballet Theatre’s dancers bring her choreography to life along with new, exquisite hand-painted sets and 150 new hand-sewn costumes. Designed by the young, accomplished Sergei Novikov, these are in the century-old tradition of the great theatrical masters. Special effects makeup by award-winning Irina Strukova completes the glittering fantasy that is Swan Lake!

Russian Ballet Theatre has partnered with PLUS1, an initiative that connects artists with causes. $1 from every ticket sold will support local public school teachers and their classroom projects in El Paso and surrounding areas.
