‘Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake’ By The Russian Ballet Theatre

“Swan Lake” is the time-honored story of Odette, cursed to be a swan by day who returns to being a woman at night. Little good can come of this, resulting in a tragic love story that has become one of the most popular ballets in history. The premiere of the Russian Ballet Theatre’s version of the dance will be at the Louisville Memorial Auditorium for one night only. By the way, do you know the auditorium was built to commemorate the deeds of local individuals who served in World War I? The unusual memorial, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was dedicated on Memorial Day in 1929. —Jo Anne Triplett
