Swan Lake This Weekend Only

Posted on

Don’t miss your chance to see Swan Lake at the Benedum Center today through sunday! The most popular of all classical ballets, Swan Lake is the ultimate tale of betrayal and everlasting love.

First performed in 1877, the ballet’s stunning choreography and demanding roles require dancers to be technically precise and to possess commanding dramatic ability. The coveted dual role of Odette and Odile is considered one of the most cherished in a ballerina’s repertoire. Swan Lake is an emotionally charged production that will take your breath away.

Come to the Carlton Restaurant for a meal before the show and get a free limo ride to the Benedum Center. For more information visit Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre.
