Swan Lake's romance and beauty have mesmerized audiences for over 100 years. Always a crowd favorite, Swan Lake uses Russian folklore to tell the story of young Odette who is turned into a swan by the evil Von Rothbart. Despite her new physical form, Odette falls deeply in love with Prince Siegfried. At the royal ball, Prince Siegfried is fooled by Von Rothbart into believing the sorcerer's daughter, Odile, is his love Odette. He unknowingly professes his love for Odile, leaving Odette sick with heartbreak. In 2009, when Texas Ballet Theater last performed Swan Lake, Fort Worth Weekly praised the portrayal of Odile saying, "Everything seemed right - the joy with which she seduced the prince and the technical fireworks she tossed off with all the snap, crackle, and pop you could wish for."

Texas Ballet Theater is thrilled to announce that the romantic Swan Lake will be accompanied by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra to celebrate Tchaikovsky's work and present this classical ballet at its best.
