Sacramento Ballet Announces Its New Dancemaker-Driven, World Vision-Influenced Production Of Tchaikovsky’s Timeless Love Story, Swan Lake
Neoclassical Production Embraces Global Traditions With New Staging;
Live Orchestra Featured At Every Performance.
Following Sacramento Ballet’s immensely successful “hometown” Nutcracker, the hard-working company is preparing for upcoming performances of Tchaikovsky’s iconic Swan Lake on February 17-19, 2023. Staged by Artistic Director Anthony Krutzkamp, who has performed the work across the United States and in Asia, the company brings inspiration from global productions and a fresh perspective to this timeless classical romantic ballet.
“Alongside Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is one of the most beloved and frequently performed ballets around the world,” said Artistic/Executive Director Anthony Krutzkamp. “However, it hasn’t been staged in Sacramento for many years. We wanted to bring Swan Lake back into SacBallet’s repertoire with fresh, neoclassical movement poised to make it even more exciting for our diverse modern audiences, while honoring the work’s rich classical roots. I will be especially hands-on with my involvement as a dancemaker to help elevate our dancers both technically and artistically. Together with the artists, we aim to create an exciting, accessible interpretation of the time-honored love story as something wondrous, new and beautiful.”
There have been many interpretations of Tchaikovsky’s first ballet, Swan Lake, produced around the world since its 1877 premiere. SacBallet’s new production takes inspiration from Cuban, Japanese, Korean, Parisian, Russian, Ukrainian and U.S. choreography. SacBallet’s new Swan Lake honors the traditions of this romantic ballet about the princess transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer and the power of love. Enhanced features such as specialized set design will help clarify the underlying story. A live orchestra will accompany every performance.
