A New Artistic Vision from Peter Martins
The legendary New York City Ballet presents a masterful retelling of the Tchaikovsky-Pepita classic melded with the nuances of George Balanchine's daring one-act version of Swan Lake, deftly brought together under the creative eye of Danish danseur and choreographer Peter Martins. This new full-length production boasts the lucidity, speed and precision that the NYCB is renowned for while keeping elements from the traditional score, culminating in a must-see for first timers and old fans alike!
Martins' original artistic vision also shines through; drawing from inspirations that include the exoticism of Russian dance, he's breathed new life into the institution that is Swan Lake. The choreographer has also collaborated with one of Denmark's most celebrated artists to create a unique set and costume design. Per Kirkeby has shown his work in prestigious galleries throughout the world including NYC's Museum of Modern Art.
