Tchaikovsky * Springfield Symphony Orchestra
Saint Louis Ballet’s most popular program is now enhanced by the lush sounds of live music, courtesy of the Springfield Symphony Orchestra. The story of the princess, turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse, is an achingly beautiful tale – now a staple in every major ballet company’s repertoire.
First performed by the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow in 1877, the ballet is performed to a magnificent Tchaikovsky score that drives the emotional and tragic love story of Seigfried and Odette. “Moonlit” dances that fill the stage, varied and difficult choreography, a live symphony orchestra. If you have but one ballet to see, Swan Lake is the one.
Saint Louis Ballet is grateful to the many individuals who support live music for the ballet through their contributions. To make a contribution to Saint Louis Ballet's live music fund, please click here.
