Hylton Presents: Russian National Ballet: Swan Lake
April 5, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| $34
Be enchanted by one of the most beloved storybook ballets. Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s first ballet, Swan Lake, charms time and again with the stunning grace of classical dance, its breathtaking sets and costumes, and the sublime music of one of the great Russian composers. Based on a fairy tale, this enchanting family favorite is replete with magic and romance, princesses and princes, and good versus evil. The story centers on the love between Prince Siegfried and Odette. Under the spell of an evil sorcerer, Odette spends her days as a swan swimming on a lake of tears, and her nights in her lovely human form. Treat the whole family to the beauty of this splendid performance by 50 elegant dancers from the world-famous Russian National Ballet. ”The Russian National Ballet, directed by Elena Radchenko, is a cut above many of its rivals.” (The Washington Post)
