One-hour Family Ballet
Choreography by Bruce Wells

This world premiere production of Swan Lake features all of the mystery and magic of the beloved classic but fits the treasured story into a one-hour format that serves as a perfect introduction to ballet. Will Prince Siegfried be able to save Odette, the beautiful swan princess, from the reaches of the wicked Von Rothbart? Our one-hour family ballet may be designed for our youngest audience members, ages 12 and under, but this dazzling production can be enjoyed by children and adults alike.


March 27-29, 2020 | Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre
With the Atlanta Ballet Orchestra

Achingly beautiful and tragic, Giselle is an enrapturing masterwork that remains one of the most enduring romantic ballets of all time. After a young peasant girl named Giselle is deceived by her true love, Albrecht, she falls into a fit of despair and dies of a broken heart. A woman scorned, she is destined to rise from the grave with the vengeful otherworldly beauties known as the Willis, entrapping men who unwittingly cross their paths. At once beguiling and maleficent, the Willis capture Albrecht and condemn him to dance until his death, but the power of Giselle’s enduring love protects him and ultimately sets them both free.
