The ballerinas on swan boats on Boston Garden in anticipation of the new production of Swan Lake

Boston Ballet presents the world premiere of Mikko Nissinen's Swan Lake,..... The production features magnificent new costumes and sets with choreography that captures the flare and heart of Tchaikovsky's romantic score. As timeless as the love that binds Siegfried and Odette it will leave you spellbound until the very end.
