This week the Los Angeles Ballet announced its sixth season. With Artistic Directors Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary at the helm, this season will premiere Swan Lake. Continuing to reach out to new audiences, LAB will offer performances at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach and the Valley Performing Arts Center in Northridge for the very first time, in addition to the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center, UCLA’s Royce Hall, and Glendale’s Alex Theatre.

Once again LAB will kick off its season with the Neary-Christensen choreographed production of The Nutcracker, featuring sets with a Los Angeles flair by LA designer Catherine Kanner and costumes originally designed by Mikael Melbye.

That will be followed by Swan Lake, the company’s fourth full length ballet. The legendary classic tells the abiding tale of a Swan Queen, a Prince, an evil spell, and an eternal love. Choreographed by Christensen and Neary after Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, this renowned story is set to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s rapturous score.
