Houston Ballet “Swan Lake”
Oct 29, 2022 - Oct 30, 2022
Much to the enthrallment of ballet enthusiasts across Japan, Houston Ballet announced its Tokyo tour of “Swan Lake” for this coming October. One of America’s prized jewels of ballet companies, Houston Ballet lines up with other big companies like the American Ballet Theater, New York City Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet. Boasting a vast repertoire and first-rate dancers, the energy and American charm of Houston Ballet’s “Swan Lake” will be a true gift to those of us in Tokyo.
Exploring darker themes of human psychology within a fast-paced plot and several active dance numbers, Houston Ballet’s “Swan Lake” is a breath of fresh air (and a gulp of an energy drink) among the many versions of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece. Even those familiar with “Swan Lake” will find new insights and inspirations from this visually stunning rendition. Not quite Russian nor English, Welch’s “Swan Lake” materializes as a distinctly American performance – it’s dynamic, fast-paced, bold, and evokes the kind of emotion that can only be experienced in the theater.
You can catch them at one of their four performances, with the dates and cast as follows:
