NBT is honored to present the classic love story of all ballets, Swan Lake, in a full-length production with orchestra. This Smith Center Premiere will be staged by the legendary Cynthia Gregory, whose definitive performance as Odette/Odile led her to be described as America's prima ballerina assoluta by Rudolph Nureyev. Ms. Gregory will be staging her greatest role on a new generation of dancers, making this engagement of Swan Lake the cultural event of the season. Set to Tchaikovsky's glorious score, this romantic fable of ill-fated love is a beautiful, atmospheric, moving experience, and a must-see for ballet aficionados and newcomers alike.


Prior to both performances, NBT will present Insights, an educational pre-performance discussion offering patrons an opportunity to further engage with the ballet, with special guests, multi-media presentations and more. Insights is free to all ticket holders and will take place in the Troesh Studio Theater, adjacent to Reynolds Hall, 45 minutes prior to curtain at 6:45 pm on Saturday and 1:15 pm on Sunday.


Have a group of 10 or more? Contact NBT Group Sales at (702) 243-2623 for information on priority seating, special discounts and exclusive experiences.


As a courtesy to our ticket holders, no children under 5 years of age are admitted to the performances.
