City Ballet's season closer not only brings the beautiful Act II of Swan Lake to the stage for Mother's Day weekend, but also presents the world premiere of resident choreographer Elizabeth Rowe Wistrich's work set to Mozart's "Requiem," featuring the acclaimed dance company, a 100-voice chorus, vocal soloists and the live City Ballet Orchestra. This spectacular new piece forgoes a literal staging of the text, for a more powerful movement-based interpretation of the emotions in each of its 12 sections. Learn More
