Swan Lake Miami Tickets
The Swan Lake Ballet
Swan Lake is a beautiful ballet that tells the story of graceful Odette, a beautiful yet tragic Princess, cursed to live as a white swan by her father, the wicked sorcerer Von Rothbart. Known as “The Swan Queen,” she can take on human form at night; the spell can only be broken if she can find a faithful suitor. Prince Siegfried falls in love with Odette but is forced into marrying someone else by his mother, the Queen. Odile, the “Black Swan” and Odette’s evil witch sister, tricks him. As the music and drama builds, Prince Siegfried must choose between Odette and Odile, causing their happily ever after to end in her swan song.
This two-act ballet, composed by Pyotr IIyich Tchaikovsky (Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker) is now one of the most famous and beloved ballets in the world. Created in 1875-1876, Swan Lake is based primarily on Russian folk tales. Many adaptations have been made since its original premiere date in 1877. In 1940, the San Francisco Ballet’s version was extremely successful; it was one of the first American ballet companies to perform Swan Lake. More recently, famous names from The Metropolitan Opera such as Misty Copeland, Isabella Boylston, Gillian Murphy and Veronika Part have performed as Odette and Odile. Marcelo Gomes, Daniil Simkin, Alexandre Hammoudi, James Whiteside and Roberto Bolle have given life to Prince Siegfried.
The musical score for Swan Lake calls for strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. This 19th-century grand orchestration is meant to keep the original Tchaikovsky sound. The revival of Swan Lake in 1895 went through some revisions by Riccardo Drigo.
