A live orchestra performs Tchaikovsky's superb score as the Australian Ballet brings their new critically-acclaimed production of Swan Lake to the stage of the world-famous Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Choreographer Graeme Murphy freshens this all-time favorite with a few modern touches, while keeping all the passion and romance gloriously intact. The famed classical ballet tells the story of young lovers Siegfred and Odette, who's captured by the evil von Rothbart and transformed into a swan. Siegfred sets out to save his beloved before it's too late, though he's beguiled and distracted by von Rothbart's daughter, the seductive black swan Odile. This season-opening event is also a part of the Music Center's 50th anniversary celebration, commemorating Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn's performance of Swan Lake with the Australian Ballet on the very same stage in the mid-'60s.

Excellent dancing, lively crowd-pleasing comedy ballet. Shostachovich's music is delightful. Seating at the Pavilion was weird, however, Goldstar's seats were far left or far right and the staging and curtains cut-off part of the action which was very irritating. Who designed this? Not great seats even at half-price.
Quotes & Highlights
Read an article about The Bright Stream in The New York Times.
Accompanied by live orchestra, The Bright Stream is set to a witty score by Dmitri Shostakovich. Winner of the Critics’ Circle National Dance Award, the brilliant choreography of this delightful ballet, is full of fun, misplaced flirtations and a slew of disguises. Paired with ABT’s technical precision and undeniable grace, The Bright Stream will leave audiences joyful and invigorated.
