New York City Ballet Presents ‘Swan Lake’ at the David H. Koch Theater

David H. Koch Theater

20 Lincoln Center Plaza

Tchaikovsky’s stirring melodies usher in NYCB’s fall season with a two-week run of Swan Lake. Whether it’s innocent heartbreak or devious manipulation, there’s a reason why audiences flock to see the Swan Queen: the dual role of Odette/Odile is a testament to a ballerina’s mettle, requiring formidable strength and feathery delicacy.

A stunning romantic tragedy, this seminal ballet is shaped by Tschaikovsky’s heartbreakingly beautiful score and the central role of Odette/Odile, an interpretation that is both technically and emotionally demanding.

Music: Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky
Choreography: Peter Martins after Marius Petipa, Lev Ivanov, and George Balanchine
