Event Details

Ballet Northwest’s longstanding tradition of performing a full-length ballet over Mother’s Day weekend at the Washington Center returns this year with Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake Friday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, May 7 at 5 p.m., and Sunday, May 8 at 2 p.m.

When the beautiful Odette spurns the advances of the sorcerer von Rothbart, he delivers a curse that transforms her into a white swan. Prince Siegfried goes hunting and spies Odette as a lovely swan. He discovers her secret and they fall in love, but von Rothbart and his daughter Odile (the black swan) have other plans. Tchaikovsky’s dramatic score sets the tone for this quintessential classical ballet, featuring lavish sets created by renowned designer Jill Carter, and exquisite costumes designed by BNW’s costume team.

This year’s production features guest artist Brian Simcoe as the lead male dancer, Prince Siegfried. Simcoe is a Principal Dancer with Oregon Ballet Theatre in Portland. Local dancers Elina Brein (Odette), Jolie Alonso (Odile), and Jacob Brein (Von Rothbart) round out the lead roles.
