What better way to celebrate this Valentine's Day than with a timeless story of true love, the union of two souls and the ultimate sacrifice to be set free.
Swan Lake, one the world's most magical and beloved ballets, comes to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Feb. 15.
The Main Theatre will be adorned with 23 extraordinary dancers from Ballet JÃ¶rgen, showcasing the beauty of ballet in its purest form as they bring Tchaikovsky's renowned masterpiece to life.
Captivating audiences for more than 100 years, Swan Lake is the perfect show to dazzle any Valentine this February.
Graceful and poetic, this classical interpretation of Swan Lake celebrates Ballet JÃ¶rgen's 25th year in Canada with a cross-country tour designed to give everyone an opportunity to see, experience and be touched by this beloved ballet.
"I am so excited to do this work and be able to do it with the kind of incredible dancers that we have," says artistic director and CEO Bengt JÃ¶rgen. "Swan Lake has an evocative and inspiring quality that makes it a pleasure and beauty to work on, and I'm excited about transferring that feeling to the people who watch it."
Famous for his attention to choreographic detail and history, JÃ¶rgen offers visionary new settings for a familiar story and showcases the extraordinary beauty of ballet.
Providing a dramatic backdrop to the stunning 17th century costume designs are elaborate sets that will take your breath away as this magnificent story unfolds.
