Colorado Ballet presents "Swan Lake."
The company was already planning to bring back its well-received 2008 production of the 19th-century ballet masterpiece this fall, but the sensation surrounding "Black Swan" has given the revival a big boost.
Colorado Ballet marketers have eagerly sought to take advantage of the coincidence, hoping to lure fans of the psychological thriller who might never have attended one of the company's productions.
It has been a long wait for those of us who love Swan Lake. The last time we had the chance to see the Colorado Ballet perform Swan Lake in Denver was 2008.
Q&A with Maria Mosina
If you could perform only one role for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
It's hard to say because when you start to prepare for a ballet, no matter whether it's classical or contemporary or whatever, you're changing everything about yourself in order to do that. You are that part for as long as you play it. At that time, at that moment, it's your favorite piece to do, especially in classical ballet. So right now my favorite parts are the white swan and the black swan because I think about nothing else.
