The Russian Ballet Theatre announced a new breathtaking production of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. It will travel to 52 cities across America. With four local stops.
Swan Lake, which hasn’t been performed since 2019, will hit Newwark, NJ at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Feb. 13 (7pm), in Trenton at the Patriots Theatre at the War Memorial on Tuesday, Feb. 15 (7:30), the next day in Sewell, NJ, at the Investors Bank Performing Arts Center and on Feb. 17 (7:30), in Reading at the Santander Performing Arts Center (7:30).

The 2022 tour delights by pairing time-honored Russian traditions with some delightful new inspirations. “Although we are telling the classic story of ‘Swan Lake,’ there are tweaks here and there that make the show new and exciting. We have all new choreography. Usually there is one jester, we have five of them. We did what we could to make the production more lively and more colorful,” said co-producer Gulya Hartwick in a press release.
Prices range from $35 to $135. Be sure to check the venue’s website for updates on health and safety protocols. All
