(based on the original Ballet of 1895 by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov)

Music: Swan Lake

Composer: Peter Ilyich Tchiakovsky

Scenery and Costumes: David Guthrie

Performed with Symphony Silicon Valley

Dennis Nahat’s version of one of the greatest romantic ballets ever written features over 135 costumes and beautiful scenery from David Guthrie. Danced to a live performance by Symphony Silicon Valley, the romantic tale follows Prince Siegried as he rescues his beloved Princess Odette from the wicked Baron Von Rothbart who has cast a spell on the young beauty and turned her into the Swan Queen.
