There is a reason Swan Lake has remained the world’s most beloved classical ballet for more than a century. It is an achingly beautiful fairytale told through unparalleled virtuosic choreography and Tchaikovsky’s indelible score that has long surpassed the test of time.
Kelowna's Mission Dance Company makes its debut appearance in Kamloops this May with one of the most popular and timeless ballets ever staged. This beautiful and powerful production, adored by children and adults alike, tells the story of young Prince Siegfried who falls in love with the White Swan, Odette. An evil sorcerer, Rothbart, captures victims and puts them under a terrible spell that transforms maidens into swans. Rothbart has power over all the swans and can direct them as he pleases, especially Odette. The only thing that can break the spell is true love and Rothbart will do anything in his power to stop it.
We welcome you to join us at the Sagebrush Theatre on Friday May 19, 2023 at 7:30pm for this 'must see' presentation and help us bring the magic, romance, and love of this epic ballet to life.
