GAINESVILLE, FL – Experience the timeless classic of Swan Lake this spring with Dance Alive National Ballet and guest artists from Philadelphia Ballet.

The Company is proud to present Swan Lake on March 25 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Gainesville. Tickets cost between $35 and $70, with discounted rates for children, students and seniors.

Guest artists Oksana Maslova and Sterling Baca from Philadelphia Ballet will star in the 7:30 p.m. show and Dance Alive Principals Carla Amancio and Gabriel Lopes will star in the 2 p.m. show.

“What can you say that hasn’t been already said about Swan Lake? The greatest of the classical ballets, it embodies everything that audiences, dancers and students of ballet love and respect about ballet,” said Executive Artistic Director Kim Tuttle. “Without a doubt, it is my personal favorite, and I feel such joy in presenting it to you.”

Widely considered one of the most beautiful ballets of all-time, Swan Lake is the story of a Prince whose fiancée has been transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer.
