Swan Lake A Huge Success!

Swan Lake was absolutely gorgeous and the dancers awed the audience!

Jerry McCollum said, "My first ballet brought tears to my eyes – the sets, staging and costuming were magical. The dancers were uniformly excellent, with the prima ballerina being wonderfully graceful and strong. I was entranced with the entire production. It was like watching flowers bloom in front of me to the music of Tchaikovsky.

What a great introduction to the world of ballet! Many thanks!"
Jerry says it well. What more can I add?

I love this job!

Swan Lake- The Story

Swan Lake- Sunday, March 8th, 3:00 pm at the WSU Beasley Coliseum

Tchaikovsky’s brilliant score and the rich beauty and precision of the dancers have placed “Swan Lake” among the most famous and loved works in the history of classical ballet. Eugene Ballet, one of the leading ballet companies in the west will bring this great work to the stage.

THE STORY: The story of “Swan Lake,” has all the ingredients of a magical fantasy mixed with a great love story and a battle of good vs. evil. Souring music, beautiful costumes, and elaborate scenery all set the stage for the story of a Prince’s love for an enchanted Princess who, with the ladies of her court, are eternally imprisoned as swans under the spell of Von Rothbart, an evil sorcerer. The spell dooms them to be swans by day and maidens by night. Only the true love of a prince can break the spell. The Prince Siegfried does fall in love with the Swan Queen, but Von Rothbart hatches a plot to get the Prince to betray her by substituting a look alike Black Swan to entice him. Go to: to have a sneak peek of the show.

I'll see you at the Ballet!
