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.
South Jersey natives Ian Hussey (Pennsylvania Ballet) and Corey Landolt (Washington Ballet) both perform as Prince Siegfried, while Evelyn Kocak (Pennsylvania Ballet) and Francesca Forcella (Ballet X) both perform as Odette. Billy Elliott star Max Baud is also featured in this production. On sets designed by Quinlan’s Scenic Studios, these dancers dazzle audiences in costumes conceived by renown designer A. Christina Giannini.
