Miami City Ballet to hold North American premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s acclaimed Swan Lake
The world’s most famous ballet is an epic fairytale of love, magic, and betrayal is set to Tchaikovsky’s achingly beautiful score and boasts a stage filled with more than 50 dancers, lavish costumes, and grand sets.
What was once forgotten is lovingly renewed. For this Swan Lake, Ratmansky dug deep within the history of the fabled ballet, reconstructing much of the original choreography through extensive research and notations dating back to the 1895 Marius Petipa/Lev Ivanov production.
Here you will discover why “this Swan Lake has become the one by which all others are judged,” (The New York Times).
