At the Irvine Barclay Theatre
Festival Ballet Theatre presents the classic ballet, Swan Lake. It is a story that is as poignant today as it was at its inception over a century ago. Set to Tchaikovsky’s elegantly moving score, it is the story of young Prince Siegfried and Odette, the Swan Queen, a young girl doomed to be a swan by day and a woman by night due to the spell of an evil sorcerer. Her fate can only be altered by a man’s love, which is put to the test by the sorcerer and his daughter. In the end, it’s a story that reminds us of the transformative power of love and its ability to look beyond the surface.
Appearing in the lead roles with Festival Ballet are guest artists Yuan Yuan Tan and Tiit Helimets, principal dancers from San Francisco Ballet. These dynamic performers will dance alongside FBT’s highly accomplished company dancers to bring this beautiful story to life.
Don’t miss Swan Lake’s spectacular beauty, power and grace!
