The Metropolitan Opera

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, 30 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023

Of all the great classics performed by ABT today, Swan Lake remains the quintessential ballet, the one that defines the standards of the Company, tests its dancers, and ennobles the spirit of the audience. This romantic fable of ill-fated passion, dreamlike transformation, and ultimate forgiveness is set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score. With breathtaking choreography and visually magnificent sets evoking a Renaissance court, the fabled lake of the swans rises into view, inspiring awe for generations to come. — ABT
