California Ballet’s Swan Lake

Had he been less rash, Romeo might have avoided his plight, but what chance did Prince Siegfried from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake stand when his quest for love was bent by wizardry? Made melancholy by the necessity of marriage, the young prince sets out to distract himself with a swan hunt. To his surprise, however, the flock he’s tracking lands beside a crystalline lake and transforms into a group of beautiful maidens, led by Odette, the most beautiful of all. The evil sorcerer Von Rothbart has cursed them to be birds by day and women by night, making true love the only key to their freedom. Prince Siegfried seems like the dashing young man for the job, but he would do well to remember that sorcerers stoop to cheating—even at the game of love, and especially at Monopoly.

Ever the ambassador, California Ballet welcomes Dutch National Ballet principals Maia Makhateli and Artur Shesterikov to the stage alongside international performer Raydel Caceres. Clad in gauzy white tutus and skirts that flow and flap like feathers, the California Ballet dancers bring the magical lake to life with choreography by Thor Sutowski, a three-time Emmy Award winner for his work on PBS dance programs.

California Ballet

Even when a ballet imposes technical challenges and its reputation raises expectations to near-impossible levels, California Ballet's dancers and artists don't shy away. Much of the company's repertoire reads like a 19th-century Top-10 list—Midsummer Night's Dream, Coppelia, Swan Lake—yet it makes each staging uniquely its own, either by revamping the choreography, casting The Nutcracker with upwards of 200 students from its dance school, or creating sets and costumes that would dazzle an "Ooooh" out of a royal guardsman.


Reviews

The dancers were enthusiastic and obviously enjoying the ballet. The costumes were very pretty and the sets were magical.

This was my first ballet, but it was amazingly produced, acted and orchestrated. I've never seen such a combination of audible and visual excellence
