In February NFB will present one of the crown jewels of classical ballet: Swan Lake. 120 years after its revival by Petipa, the same renowned Russian ballet master who brought The Nutcracker to life, NFB Ballet Mistress and former Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo dancer Dorothy Daniels Lister will be staging a season finale performance that is not to be missed. Like all the best tales of enchantment, “Swan Lake” weaves together a beautiful princess, a passionate prince, and an obstacle that only true love can overcome. Will the evil Von Rothbart succeed in keeping Princess Odette and Prince Sigfried apart? Music by Pytor Ilyich Tchaikovsky creates a thrilling and magical soundtrack for what is truly one of the most iconic and enduring ballets of all time. Performances will be Saturday, February 28 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 1 at 2:30 pm at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center.

Season subscriptions for the entire 2014-15 performing season are available now. For only $80 for adults and $40 for children you will receive a ticket for each of the three main stage productions – and the earlier you secure your seats, the better the will be! The regular box office will open one month before the premiere performance of each show. For more information call NFB at 850-664-7787 or visit nfballet.org.
