One of the best-loved works of the classical ballet repertoire is Swan Lake, a fairy tale about a Prince who falls in love with Swan Queen Odette under a curse from an evil sorcerer with a daughter Odile who’s basically Odette’s evil twin. The role of Odette/Odile is a plum showcase for a ballerina.
Now the Cleveland Ballet debuts its version of this classic set to music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, with new choreography by the company’s artistic director Gladisa Guadalupe, and, they tell us, a surprising twist. It opens the company’s 2022-2023 season, marking their return to Playhouse Square, for two performances. For tickets, go here.
