About Swan Lake
This full-scale production, set to the music of Pyotr Tchaikovsky and based on Russian folklore and German legend, follows a heroic young prince as he works to free the beautiful swan maiden from an evil spell. Swan Lake is a ballet in four acts with one intermission with music by Pytor Tchaikovsky and choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov.
The choreographer of the original production was Julius Reisinger. The ballet was premiered by the Bolshoi Ballet on March 4,1877 at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. Although it is presented in many different versions, most ballet companies base their stagings both choreographically and musically on the 1895 revival of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, first staged for the Imperial Ballet on January 15,1895, at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg.
About the Taft Theatre
Located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, the Taft Theatre is the premiere destination for live entertainment. The Theatre opened in 1928 and is a marvelous display of the neo-classical/art deco architecture that prevailed during the time period. The 2011 renovation integrated 21st century comfort while returning the historic ambience and character of this 83-year-old structure and gem of Cincinnati. The changes and improvements have successfully created the “Ultimate, Intimate Entertainment Experience” in the Tri-State.
