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.
The performances put on by Ballet Fedotov feature both professional dancers and students of the Russian Academy of Ballet Alafaya. More than 1,500 students have passed through the program, toting with them their slippers, leotards, and tutus. There's equipment a-plenty, but talent's the most plentiful resource here. The Academy's alumni have gone on to perform with institutions as diverse as the Corella Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet, and Disney, while current students pirouette through classes and numerous performances per year.
