Swan Lake. A million ballerinas have danced a version of it, the hauntingly grand Tchaikovsky music is unmistakeable aaaaand who can forget 2010's The Black Swan? Seriously. Well, that's all about to change.
The Silverlake Contemporary Ballet (SCB) is re-inventing the story once again and just to make it that much more LA, each act will be played by local legends...live...on stage. Yep, you heard that right. Awesome sounds by Races, The Young Romans and Holly Conlan will each play a rock rendition of the centuries-old ballet score. In addition, a collection of large scale paintings curated by Edgar Varela Fine Arts will set the scene, American Apparel will donate the costumes and, together, all tell their depiction of a love story 'tested by Hollywood morality'.
Just a taste of what you'll see:
The SCB returns after a sold-out 1st season THIS WEEKEND for only 3 days of shows: September 21st - 23rd. Tickets start at $25 to view a private dress rehearsal Friday evening and can run you to $36 for priority seating to see the full production at The Assistance League Theater of Hollywood. Can't afford the show? Join the volunteer crew and see the show for free! Contact HERE for details.
A much overdue addition to our burgeoning creative community, Swan Lake by the Silverlake Contemporary Ballet promises an amazing eruption of talent to see and is a show not to be missed. See you soon!
