American Ballet Theatre returns to the Detroit Opera House with one of ballet’s most beloved titles.

Long before the story begins, the beautiful Princess Odette falls under the spell of a wicked sorcerer. Her fate is that she takes on the form of a swan; only in the hours of darkness can she assume her human guise, and only when a youth swears eternal fidelity to her and marries her will she be released from the spell. Prince Siegfried, on his 21st birthday, stumbles upon her in a moonlit clearing in the forest and falls in love. Their destinies become entwined when the sorcerer presents his own daughter, Odile, to marry the prince, and the ensuing trickery leads to tragedy. This stunning production is set to a gorgeous score by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, performed live by the Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra. Casting to be announced.

Pre-Performance Talks begin one hour before curtain every performance.

Co-presented with Michigan Opera Theatre. Funded in part by the Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan.

Round-trip luxury coach service is available for purchase online for the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening performances.
