In 1993, Act II of Swan Lake was the first classical ballet that Robert Gardner
staged for the then-Duluth Ballet. Now he realizes a longtime dream of
creating the entire Swan Lake, his vision of the iconic, world-performed ballet
set to the glorious Tchaikovsky score. It’s a grand sweep of enchantment,
love, betrayal, and poignant resolution. It’s the contrasting realms of elegant
palace with its pageantry of royal court dances and stylized national
dances… to the darkened woods by a moonlit lake where Prince Siegfried
comes upon graceful swan maidens and falls in love with Odette, their
beautiful queen, …to the wicked enchantment of Prince Siegfried by Von
Rothbart’s daughter, Odile, that inevitably leads to the final act of love.
