Swan Lake


Choreography by Kevin McKenzie
after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov
Music by Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky
Scenery and Costumes by Zack Brown
Lighting by Duane Schuler

Of all the great classics performed by ABT today, Swan Lake remains the quintessential ballet. The one that defines the standards of the Company, tests its dancers, and ennobles the spirit of its audience. This romantic fable of ill-fated passion, dreamlike transformation, and ultimate forgiveness is set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score. With breathtaking choreography and visually magnificent sets evoking a Renaissance court, the fabled lake of the swans rises into view, inspiring awe for generations to come.
