Stapleton Ballet presents Swan Lake
The Stapleton Ballet brings to the Marin Center stage one of the most magical and well-known works from the classical ballet repertoire. This is a story that is as poignant today as it was at its inception over a century ago. Our dramatic four-act staging of this masterpiece features opulent costumes and scenery and a cast of over one-hundred accomplished young dancers with professional guest artists. Performed to one of Tchaikovsky's most memorable scores, this is a powerful tale of love's triumph as Prince Siegfried attempts to rescue his beloved Odette from the vengeful Von Rothbart, who has cast a spell on the young beauty and turned her into his Swan Queen. In the end, Swan Lake reminds us of the transformative power of love, appealing to classical ballet fans as well as newcomers to this magnificent art form.
