Of Swans and Variants

April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This exciting program features an excerpt from a crown jewel of the classical ballet repertoire, Swan Lake Act II, followed by a recently choreographed contemporary piece, VARIANTS, from Artistic Director Ethan Stiefel.

Swan Lake Act II takes audiences into the bewitching world of Odette, the swan princess, as she reveals her true form to Prince Siegfried. From the famous “Dance of the Cygnets” to the poignant and romantic pas de deux between Odette and the prince, this fairytale scene will leave audiences spellbound.

Ethan Stiefel’s VARIANTS is set to Brahms’ “Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Op. 24.” Both the music and choreography consist of a set of twenty-five variations and a concluding fugue. VARIANTS is made possible by the generous support of The Ted & Mary Jo Shen Charitable Gift Fund.
