Balanchine's one-act revision of Tschaikovsky's Swan Lake, with its corps of sleek black swans and icy landscape, infuses this enchanting classic with new passion and heartbreak.

The New York City Ballet

Closed 22 Sep 2013
The legendary New York City Ballet presents George Balanchine's unique vision of Swan Lake. When asked to present a production of the iconic ballet, Balanchine requested that he be granted artistic license to create a more daring piece.

The resulting ballet is much shorter, being only 36 minutes long! It also has a much darker, and intense mood, carried throughout from the choreography to the costumes and set design. Balanchine's new Swan Lake premiered in 1951 and has become a regular highlight of the NYCB's season programming ever since!
