Swan Lake

March 5, 2015 to March 15, 2015 Academy of Music

Behold Pennsylvania Ballet’s own stunning version of the world’s most renowned ballet. Premiered in 2004 to national acclaim, Christopher Wheeldon’s stellar production of Swan Lake was commissioned and performed to sold-out audiences for the Company’s 40th anniversary season, followed by sold-out performances at Edinburgh International Festival. Wheeldon’s Swan Lake is based on the original Ivanov/Petipa classic and set to the timeless Tschaikovsky score but has been re-imagined for today’s audiences. The million-dollar production features spectacular costumes and sets inspired by Edgar Degas. Brilliant choreography and searing moments of drama illuminate ballet’s greatest love story.
