About this event

From entering the Artist Door to Sitting few feet away from the Dancers, The Face to Face Series’ intimate studio showing is a gateway to a magic experience. Take photos and videos during and after the show and enjoy a chat with Director Chiara Ajkun and the Cast at the end.

Choreography: Chiara Ajkun after Marius Petipa & Lev Ivanov

Music: Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky

Dreaming of pure love Prince Siegfried (Klevis Tafaj) ventures to the lake. Spellbound by the appearance of a beautiful white swan, Siegfried sees it transforming into Princess Odette (Momoko Burbine) before his eyes. Odette tells Siegfried of the evil sorcerer Von Rothbart (John Trunfio) and how his spell keeps her a swan for all but a few hours of each night. Only faithful love will break the spell. Siegfried promises Odette his love and will be waiting for her arrival at the Palace. Von Rothbart arrives with Odile (Black Swan) and deceives Siegfried into believing Odile is indeed Odette. Siegfried swears to marry her, breaking the vow of fidelity. As Von Rothbart triumphs, Siegfried runs to Odette. At last, Siegfried crushes Von Rothbart and love prevails.
