The BALLET WORKSHOP presents their acclaimed full-length three act production of Swan Lake, starring professional guest ballet artists and over 90 local Clallam dancers!
One of the most famous and well known stories in classical ballet, Swan Lake is a tumultuous love story, set to one of the most romantic full- length scores by Tchaikovsky ever written. It follows the tale of Odette, a young maiden, who is captured by the sorcerer, Rothbart, and turned into a white swan. One day, the Prince of a nearby Kingdom, Siegfried, decides to leave his camp and venture out into the woods alone, where he sees Odette at the lake and falls in love with her. Tragically, the Prince is later fooled by Rothbart into choosing another maiden, the Black Swan, as his bride. Chaos ensues, as a flood overtakes the kingdom, and the devastated Prince must return to the lake to save Odette from a heartbreaking end.
The adventure and suspense is tangible in this three act production, leaving the audience guessing to the very end what will happen to the fate of the characters! The costumes, sets, non-stop action, and gorgeous choreography make this a crowd-pleasing favorite for the entire family. Don’t miss this widely-attended and revered professional ballet production, created right here on the Olympic Peninsula!
