Swan Lake North American Premiere

Feb 11 – 27, 2022



The original version of the world’s most famous ballet, Swan Lake, has been lovingly reconstructed by today’s most celebrated choreographer, Alexei Ratmansky.

Miami City Ballet will hold the exclusive North American premiere of this spellbinding fairytale. Timeless and achingly beautiful, this is an experience not to be missed.

More than 50 dancers adorn the stage in glittering costumes to tell the story of Prince Siegfried, Princess Odette and her fellow spellbound maidens, the evil Baron and the impostor Odile. All the romance and drama, captivating dancing and Tchaikovsky’s sublime score played by a live orchestra provide an escape like no other.

From a grand medieval court to the lakeside under a midnight moon, this stunning Swan Lake will set your heart alight.
