This is the 11th time that Ballet Manila is presenting Swan Lake in its 22 seasons.
Swan Lake is the tale of the beautiful Odette, turned into a swan by the sorcerer Rothbart and whose only consolation is turning back into human form for a few hours after midnight. On one such occasion, she meets Prince Siegfried, who falls in love with her but is deceived by Rothbart into getting engaged to the lookalike Odile or the Black Swan. In some versions, the ill-fated lovers die together; in others, they break the spell and live happily ever after.
Swan Lake features music by Peter Tchaikovsky performed live by the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Alexander Vikulov of Russia’s Mariinsky Theater, and the original Lev Ivanov choreography for the white acts. It will also showcase a new set design by Miguel Faustmann and new costumes by Michael Miguel.
