ABT's Swan Lake (retstaged by Kevin McKenzie) starring Gillian Murphy and Angel Corella is going to be broadcast on PBS in June (i heard June 20th, but i'm not sure).

The PBS.org website

http://www.pbs.org/w...shows/swanlake/

says they will launch the web companion on 6/1.

here's the text:
"Swan Lake" is the most popular of all classical ballets. From its first incarnation in 1877 at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow to the many productions mounted around the globe today, this timeless story of a young man's love and eventual betrayal of a swan queen, set to one of Tchaikovsky's most enduring scores, continues to engage audiences and inspire new generations of dancers. Recorded in high-definition television at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, this special captures all the grandeur of ABT Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie's visually stunning new production, which was hailed by THE WALL STREET JOURNAL as "giving the 123-year-old ballet fresh splendor, depth and momentum." The elegant production stars ABT's newest sensation, Gillian Murphy, as the Swan Queen, and the great Angel Corella as her suitor, Prince Siegfried.

Watch for the launch of the Web companion on June 1, 2005.

Evilninjax is indeed correct, at least with regard to those who get PBS via WNET
The PBS site now gives June 20 if you plug in a zip code that gets WNET.

Plug in your zip code to see when it will air in your area on the URL
