In this adaptation, Artistic Director Kevin Irving takes inspiration from the composer’s early life – Tchaikovsky was remembered as a sensitive and impressionable boy. Similarly, Irving’s Prince Siegfried is loved and doted upon in a way that would arrest his development had destiny not intervened. The young prince is suddenly thrust into a position to marry and ascend to the throne – responsibilities for which he is completely unprepared. Irving further grounds the work by removing the traditional character of the sorcerer von Rothbart. Instead it is Siegfried’s father, the frail and dying King, who conjures up the famous Odette/Odile fantasy to teach his son to distinguish between reality and illusion. By the time of his coronation, Prince Siegfried has matured into a capable leader. In an ending overflowing with hope, he realizes that love is its own magic and that the beautiful swan princess may have been by his side all along.

About Oregon Ballet Theatre
Since debuting in 1989, the Oregon Ballet Theatre has built its reputation on two seemingly opposed elements: strict balletic classicism and newly commissioned works. Now the theatre enters a new era under artistic director Kevin Irving, whose background spans both classical and contemporary performances. As a dancer, Irving appeared with scores of companies, including the Alvin Ailey Training Ensemble and Elisa Monte Dance Company. In 1994, he retired from the stage to take a position as ballet master and head of the artistic department with Nacho Duato’s Compañia Nacional de Danza in Spain. Irving looks to take the Oregon Ballet Theatre to new heights, riffing off rave reviews from the Oregonian's Bob Hicks, who wrote that the theatre's Swan Lake is "a work of sumptuous geometric balances that echo the story's mirror-image theme."
