Event Description:

Houston Ballet presents the return of Swan Lake by Artistic Director Stanton Welch AM in 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.” 

This event was originally scheduled at the Wortham Center's Brown Theater on February 22-March 4, 2018. The dates, times and location have changed due to the venue damages sustained by Hurricane Harvey.
