About the Ballet

One of the supreme achievements of 19th-century classicism, Swan Lake has remained, since its premiere in Moscow in 1877, one of the most enduringly fascinating, beloved and iconic ballets. For many it is simply the ne plus ultra of the classical ballet aesthetic. The extraordinary range of emotional and thematic possibilities that the ballet provides, the opportunities it presents for both technical virtuosity and generous, heartfelt lyricism, its simultaneous embrace of both mythical and real worlds and the incomparable beauty of Tchaikovsky’s score all combine to make it a ballet experience like no other.

Created in 1999 by James Kudelka, this version of the ballet adheres to the essential fablelike character of the original story and retains its archetypal power. At the same time, Mr. Kudelka locates in the well-known narrative fresh perspectives and thematic implications that give the ballet a more contemporary edge. Santo Loquasto’s atmospheric and dramatic sets and costumes provide the perfect setting for the ballet’s shifting moods and timeless beauty.
