A.V.A. Ballet Theatre presents the classic Swan Lake on September 17th and 18th at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts. The Reno Philharmonic Orchestra will perform the haunting score to this wonderful ballet. Re-staged and re-choreographed by Alexander Van Alstyne, Swan Lake is the story of Odette who was turned into a swan by the evil sorcerer Von Rothbart. She tells the handsome Prince Siegfried that the only way the spell can be broken is if a man, pure in heart, pledges his love to her. Von Rothbart tries to keep the two apart but in the end they ascend to the heavens above Swan Lake. Professional dancers from throughout the country will star in the lead roles. The large cast includes many talented dancers from four different ballet studios in the Reno area.
