Swan Lake

Swan Lake

February 22, 2018, 7:30 pm at the Wortham Center's Brown Theater

Event date: 2/22/2018 7:30 PM Add to iCalendar

Presented by the Houston Ballet 

Houston Ballet presents the return of Swan Lake by Artistic Director Stanton Welch AM in Spring 2018. In this modernized production, the everlasting love between Prince Siegfried and the maiden-turned-white-swan Odette is tested by the evil knight Rothbart and his black swan enchantress, Odile. Stanton Welch’s Swan Lake utilizes Tchaikovsky’s full score as arranged for this three-act production. In his staging, Mr. Welch imbues the main characters with greater psychological complexity, and gives the work a twenty-first century pace. Mr. Welch, who collaborated with Mr. Fredrikson on Swan Lake, was inspired by John William Waterhouse’s painting, The Lady of Shalott (1888).  Waterhouse (1849-1917) was a British Neo-Classical and Pre-Raphaelite painter well-known for works featuring female characters from mythology and literature. The painting, which is based on Lord Alfred Tennyson’s poem by the same title, depicts a tragic maiden afloat on a lake.  Mr. Welch commented, “When I saw this painting I said, ‘This is our Odette.’  Here is a woman, a young heroine, lost in a forest by a lake, touched by tragedy.”
