Ballet Nebraska presents: Swan Lake
October 22, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Ballet Nebraska’s talented professional dancers hail from around the nation and abroad, making the Midwest their home to share the excitement of dance with others. Through the company’s expressive performing artists, acclaimed choreographers, and skilled teachers, Ballet Nebraska plays a key role in the cultural vitality of the region.
Consistently cited by critics as one of the greatest ballets of the Imperial Russian era, Swan Lake stands as a benchmark for companies dedicated to classical excellence. Its signature roles – Odette, the regal yet vulnerable Swan Queen, and Odile, the malevolently seductive Black Swan who schemes against her – have become symbols of ballet in popular culture. Ballet Nebraska’s premiere production will combine the story’s powerful drama of good against evil with the visual brilliance that has made Swan Lake an unforgettable experience for audiences for more than a century.
