SWAN LAKE

SWAN LAKE

SWAN LAKE

Ballet’s greatest love story returns. Deeply moving and visually stunning, Swan Lake is the quintessential classical ballet. Helgi Tomasson’s strikingly modern production updates this tale of love and betrayal for the 21st century, featuring sets and costumes by Tony Award-winning designer Jonathan Fensom.


The 2009 world premiere of Helgi Tomasson's Swan Lake was made possible by Exclusive Sponsor Mrs. Jeannik Méquet Littlefield. The 2016 redesign of Act I was underwritten by Denise Littlefield Sobel.
