Behold Pennsylvania Ballet’s own stunning version of the world’s most beloved ballet. Premiered in 2004 to national acclaim, Christopher Wheeldon’s stellar production of Swan Lake was commissioned and performed to sold-out audiences for the Company’s 40th anniversary season. Wheeldon’s Swan Lake is based on the original Ivanov/Petipa classic and set to the timeless Tschaikovsky score, but has been re-imagined for today’s audiences. The million-dollar production features spectacular sets and costumes set in the 19th-century milieu of the Paris Opera Ballet of Edgar Degas. Dazzling choreography and visual complexities illuminate ballet’s greatest love story. A unique opportunity to catch a superlative show!
