About the Event

Swan Lake
with live orchestra

Houston Ballet, one of America’s most highly-regarded ballet companies, has long been a Northrop audience favorite. They will return with Artistic Director Stanton Welch’s sumptuous production of Swan Lake, performed with a live orchestra playing Tchaikovsky’s emotionally-charged score. Created especially for the company, Welch’s choreography imbues his characters with psychological complexity and gives the work a 21st century pace. One of the greatest love stories in all of classical ballet, Swan Lake tells the story of Odette, a beautiful maiden transformed into a swan by an evil knight, and the Prince who swears his eternal love to her.

“…filled-to-overflowing with beauty and grace.” –Broadway World
