Swan Lake will take you on a trance!

I was mesmerized from the start and had the music in my head until I went to bed. Unforgettable!

Principal dancers Dylan Guttierez (Siegfried) and Victoria Jaiani (Odette) were captivating, and the raw emotions felt had me in a trance. Maybe it’s Tchaikovsky’s music score played by the Chicago Philharmonic or the good seats, or perhaps it’s how Siegfried glided up in the air and seemed to stop time for a few seconds, or how Odette seduced us with the way her swan-like arms gracefully moved. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this enthralled watching a ballet performance before! It’s a not-to-miss in my book. Even my 11-year-old girl was amused. If you’ve seen Swan Lake a few times before or seeing a ballet performance for the first time, this is the one that you should experience.

Swan Lake by Christopher Wheeldon is presented at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, 50 E. Congress Parkway in 10 performances only, October 17–28, 2018.
