The doomed love story of Prince Siegfried and a swan princess is full of magic, intrigue, melancholy, and suspense. Divine costume design, breathtaking sets, and additional staging and choreography by Julie Kent and Victor Barbee bring this tragic tale of romance to a level that reveals the artistic and theatrical proficiency of The Washington Ballet.
Julie Kent on SWAN LAKE:
Presenting Swan Lake, the beloved, iconic ballet that is arguably the backbone of our art form, is a very exciting moment for The Washington Ballet. This production is the logical next step in building the repertoire for the company. All the romantic ballets the company has performed over the last few years – Giselle, Les Sylphides, The Sleeping Beauty – have prepared our dancers for this very moment. Victor and I will curate and tailor the production to our company – drawing on our years of experience, the detailed Stepanov notations, and various research – to present a wonderful marriage of dramatic theatricality and technical proficiency.
