While hunting in the forest, Prince Siegfried encounters a flock of white swans. As he aims his crossbow at the birds, one of them transforms into a beautiful young maiden. She explains that she has been cursed and is a swan by day, a young woman by night. Fearless in the face of dark magic, Prince Siegfried listens only to his heart and falls deeply in love with the mysterious young woman.

There is no greater classic than Swan Lake. The Perm Opera Ballet delivers a stirring performance, with all the finesse and mastery required by such a masterpiece. Danced to Tchaikovsky’s exhilarating and moving score, this genre-defining ballet will lead you into a world of ro­mance and tragedy.

Beginning an hour before each performance, spectators are invited to pre-show talks. These exciting half-hour talks are a rare opportunity to gain insight on the work presented.  Each pre-show talk will be hosted by journalist Shelley Pomerance who will share anecdotes on the production’s creative process, inspiration, music and costumes. A great way to start the evening!
